Very flavorful, we like dishes with some kick in my house. I changed up the peppers a bit. I used a red pepper, a yellow pepper, an orange pepper, and a poblano pepper. Very colorful and very delicious.

This was an instant favorite with my family. We used chicken instead of Andouille, and topped each pepper with a slice of cheddar cheese. Delicious!

All my boys really liked this recipe. And it was so easy - almost a no-brainer after I read the ingredients and instructions. Such a good idea, it was like geez, why didn't I think to do that? - Very good - would totally make it again

My husband thinks this is the best stuffed pepper recipe we have.

I'm a novice to cooking and never made a stuffed pepper before. This recipe was so easy and tasted amazing too. Definitely for more grown up taste-buds as it has some zing.
