"I prefer my peppers raw for this recipe and I used real potatoes baked in the oven. I added milk and sour cream to make them creamy and fluffy. Still VERY VERY good. I will be keeping this recipe!"

"Why must you be SO RUDE in all of your reviews?  If you don't like the recipe please find a tactful well to express it without being rude and hurtful!"

MY REVIEW

"I like the twist of using mashed potatoes - but I'll make mine from scratch!!! I think I'll try using Herb & Garlic Philly cream cheese or the new Dill or even Sundried Tomato & Basil in place of the packaged ranch dressing and cheddar cheese. I might even try ranch dressing and cheddar. Now that the seed has been planted I can think of a number of variation! I'm thinking these would be good for a buffet/family reunion and kept warm on one of my heated serving trays... I was brought up making mashed potatoes with warm milk and butter but everyone has liked when I add creamed cheese instead for a switch."
