This was a very tasty and easy recipe. I added cheddar cheese and it was a hit with the kids.
Delicious! I used red peppers, added 1 large seeded & minced jalapeno, sprinkled tex-mex cheese on each pepper before adding the salsa then once cooked more cheese and back in the oven to melt. Served them w/ sour cream - oh so good! Very filling and juicy. A keeper!
I didn't have celery salt, so I used seed & that was a bit much. I think it was quite good otherwise.
My husband loved this recipe. I will try some of the tips that the other members suggested. Think it would be great with the cheese. Will try next time. I wonder how they would be to make ahead and freeze them or if the peppers would be to mushy that way?
My husband said these were the BEST stuffed peppers I've ever made. I chose to add a combination of mozzarella and Mexican cheese to top each pepper after the baking time and returning it to the warm oven for a couple of minutes.
