MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2014

"My wife and I loved this! I was worried the onion might be a little overpowering but it was perfect. My only suggestion would be to add some salsa to the meat mixture so it's a little more moist."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2013

"This was a very tasty and easy recipe. I added cheddar cheese and it was a hit with the kids."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 20, 2013

"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!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 17, 2013 Edited Jul. 11, 2014

"There is something not quite right about how this recipe is written. I think next time i will brown the meat and onions first, drain and then add the rice and seasonings. Otherwise, this comes out extremely runny. I'm talking fat juice and liquid from the salsa pouring out of the cooked peppers."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2012

"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?"
