"This microwave recipe is quick and very simple, and is a good meal for a busy work week. You can use any color peppers you like. Try using garbanzos instead of the kidney beans for a variation on this recipe."

The first time I tried this I thought it was quite bland. The next time, I substituted salsa for the stewed tomatoes and loved it. I also doubled the stuffing ingredients for 3 large peppers, to make them more substantial. A great vegetarian main dish.

This recipe was really good, although it needed more spices. I changed some things but I think I kept the recipe essentially the same. First, I used regular rice and so I started cooking it on the stove a bit before I added in the tomatoes. I didn't use a microwave at all, but instead heated the peppers in the oven. I also added a little bit of garlic, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to the rice mix. This recipe was really really easy to make yet tasty... I am definitely going to make it in the future for company as a main dish. It's really hearty because of the beans, too!

This was my 1st time for stuffed peppers. They turned out great. I used 1 14oz can crushed tomatoes and 1 14oz can kidney beans. Then I changed rice to 2/3 cup. I also added a few dashes of Frank's red hot sauce. I used microwave to cook peppers, beans and corn. Cooked rice on stovetop and added all together. I baked in the oven at 325 for about 10 minutes then added cheese. I turned oven to warm until wife came home. She loved it. We froze remainder and looks like enough for 4 halves. Great easy recipe. Thanks Jen!!! Shady B
