Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing! I used orzo instead of rice and added Goya seasoning. Will definitely make again and again!

These were very tasty! I added a little worcestershire sauce and some chili powder for added flavor. I also used salsa instead of the tomatoes.

Yummy with Italian seasoning added. If I don't have cooked rice in the frig, I quickly mix up some boxed stuffing as a substitute.

Boiling the peppers just took out all of the flavor. If I were to make this again, I would grill or roast the bell peppers for SURE. And I would heavily spice the meat. It was just very bland-tasting.

Delish! Great way to use up peppers in bulk from Aldi!

Top-notch recipe! Other than adding some Cajun seasoning and the diced-up useable parts from the tops of the peppers that I'd cut off (I added these to the onions and meat mixture), we left the recipe as-is. This is a great way to get extra veggies into your meal.
