    Onions need to be diced very small. Tasted bland.used barley instead of rice and didn’’t taste great.

    I cooked meat and rice, added cheese and some sauce along with spices. I added chopped jalapeños approx 1 tsp to mixture. I boiled peppers 5 minutes prior to stuffing them. Still bit too firm so I'll try boiling 7 minutes or maybe try to roast peppers prior to stuffing mixture. Husband enjoyed very much; he would have again. Thank you for recipe and the review comments. will make again

    Very simple to make and tastes very good.
    full of flavor ! I accidentally forgot to grab mustard seeds in my grocery shopping, and substituted them for a little Dijon mustard. Everything came out amazing .

    So yummy! Previous comments are right, in that it actually takes closer to 40 minutes to cook all the way through. Make sure you salt it enough, and it's great! We definitely will make these again.

    Great recipe!! I added Italian panko breadcrumbs to the topping and it was really good!! Hubby isn’t a fan of bell peppers but he really likes this!!

    Good I cooked the meat first and then put it in the peppers

    Just from reading the comments, it helps if you boil the pepper for 5 to 7 minutes first to started the cooking process on the pepper.

    The mixture inside was delicious with added cheese! Next time I’m going to roast the peppers to add some flavour to the dish.

    my husband they were the best stuffed peppers i ever made I used spanish rice instead of white.

    The peppers were good. I added pasta sauce and cheese to the mixture to prevent dryness. I cooked my meat and rice prior to stuffing peppers. Cooking time was about 45 minutes. Used 3 peppers and split in half. Perfect amount. The family enjoyed it. I’ll definitely make again.

    I read the reviews before making and adjusted accordingly. I had five peppers and the filling filled them nicely. I didn't use any of the called for spices except salt and pepper. I used about a tablespoon of garlic, parsley, parmesan sprinkle. I baked it at 375 for 40 minutes. These changes are why I gave it 5 stars. I also used brown rice.

    Delicious! This is the second time I made them. I added Portuguese Chourico for extra flavor. The first time I made this I used ground turkey.

    Rad, perfect consistency throughout. Cheese was just the right amount of brown on top. Although I cooked for a family of four, I had enough to freeze and fill a second batch worth for another day... must try!!!!
