Very good stuffed peppers. I only think the cheeseburger taste was slightly moderate. Next time I may use tomato juice or sauce rather than the paste, which kept the filling a bit drier.

Absolutely delicious. I only used 2 large peppers, and all the stuffing. Like the other reviewers I used V-8 juice (that's what my Mom always used), and based on janeirv's review I decided to microwave the peppers for a couple of minutes before stuffing them.

Very good! Next time I would parboil peppers a little. They were too crunchy for me, I used white rice, added shredded cheddar in mix too and used tomato juice like the other reviewer did. Very good!

I made these for dinner last night with peppers from my garden and they were very tasty. I cut the rice in half and used v-8 juice since I didn't have vegetable broth on hand. I think they would also make a good freezer meal .A delicious and economical main dish.
