These filling and flavorful peppers are an updated version of my mom's stuffed peppers, which were a favorite when I was growing up in upstate New York. Whenever I make them, I'm reminded of home.—Melissa McCabe, Long Beach, California

Delicious as-is! Have made this dish several times. It is a go-to. Always have extra stuffing & I mix in some salsa and dip tortilla chips in it for lunch the next day.

Absolutely delicious! Was looking for a vegetarian entree, and this was perfect! I substituted a can of drained garlic/onion diced tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes, Mexican 4-cheese blend for the Monterrey Jack, and then baked for 30 minutes (foil covered with a bit of water in the pan) at 400 degrees, and then removed the foil, added more cheese to the top, and then baked for another 10 minutes. Will definitely be adding to our repertoire!

It was good, just not quite as good as the reviews made it sound

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 6, 2013

I made these and my husband loved them. I did not use a slow cooker - I baked them in the oven for 45 minutes at 350. Because we had only four peppers I took the rest of the stuffing and filled two small baking dishes. These were cooked along side the stuffed peppers. I ate them with tortilla chips. Yummy!
