MY REVIEW

"First time I made this, I cooked rice separately and was good. Second time I added 1/4 cup diced tomatoes to uncooked rice. Worked great."

MY REVIEW

"Good, but better the second day. I added a tablespoon of water to each pepper to make sure the rice cooked properly. No rice issues."

"Great flavor"

MY REVIEW

"What a fantastic way to make stuffed peppers that come out so tender and delicious. I used brown rice, which wasn't quite done when we were ready to eat, so I spooned some of the liquid from the bottom of the crock pot into the peppers. After another half hour or so, they were perfect. We enjoyed the tex-mex flavors, and I will use this method for my other stuffed pepper recipes in the future."

"My hubby and I love these! So easy to make and so yummy! Great with sour cream! I cooked the rice before I stuffed the peppers!"
