Reviews for Spicy Stuffed Peppers
"Good. I added low fat cheese on the top during the last five minutes. Each pepper is enough for 2 people."
"Not bad but needed a little something extra in the meat mixture - like cheese"
"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."
"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!"
