This is the first time I ever made or ate stuffed peppers. The only change I made was to add some sauteed onions and garlic. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly. The recipe made TONS more "stuffing" than I needed to fill four peppers. And the peppers were still very crisp and crunchy after I cooked them. My husband said every time he ate stuffed peppers before, they were soft. Still, they tasted fine and it made a nice meal.

I'm not a vegetarian, but from side-by-side taste testing, I think it tastes better if you substitute black beans in place of the ground beef.


Excellent with a few additions to kick up the flavor a bit. I used ground turkey, added a little enchilada sauce I needed to use up, and seasoned with fresh garlic, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. I did have to bake these for more like 40 minutes to get the rice cooked, but maybe my salsa didn't have enough liquid in it. So good. Thank you!!! :)
