"I don't really care for stuffed green peppers, but I have found that I really like them with yellow, orange, or red peppers. The salsa gives these an added kick. If desired, you can sprinkle with grated cheese during the last 10 or 15 minutes of cooking."

Quick to put together, but I wouldn't say it is tasty. I found it lacked flavour.
