    This is my go to recipe for Stuff Peppers. I tried it twice and the family loved it both times. I mixed cheese between and drizzle on top right out of oven. I did not pre-cook my peppers, it does require longer cooking time to get the peppers soft. Seems with brown rice the family used more salt and pepper, but I do use salt very little when I cook and depend on the other seasonings to bridge the gap. Family said this was a keeper.🥰

    Turned out amazing!!!
    Perfect! I love this recipe and it’s so easy to add or change the veggies to suit your preference. I added some cauliflower and broccoli in mine and they were amazing. I used Yellow peppers as they’re nice and sweet. Will do this again!

    Turned out awesome!!! I put a cajun touch to it and added jalapeños, garlic, cheese and a little cayenne pepper. First time making stuffed bell peppers and it's was delicious.

    Takes a while to put together, at least 45 mins (way longer than recipe listed 15 minutes) flavors are good and it is easy to make I add Mexican cheese on top for last 5 minutes of baking

    Delicious! This recipe is a hit with my family. I use quinoa in place of rice with great results.

    You cant mess this recipe up but i agree its a little flavourless. I added cajun seasoning and parmesan on top just to make it more tasty!

    Not enough salt in this dish with only 1/8 tsp. Taste was okay but needs more spices such as Italian seasoning.

    The peppers needed to boil longer. They were not as "squishy" as they should have been. Other than that the flavor was delicious! I will definitely make again!
