Used brown rice, and didn’t have tomato sauce so I used about 1/2 bottle of spaghetti sauce- not by choice though. We always use red peppers; chop and saut? the tops and add to filling. Good, filling, and simple to make.

This was great! I added some salsa and a can of black beans! My husband and I finished off the whole recipe by ourselves :)

Needs a little more tomato sauce and some mozzarella cheese to top it off, but it was a great recipe for my first attempt at stuffed peppers!
