  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Place peppers in boiling water, and cook 5 minutes. Remove, and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a large skillet, cook chorizo until almost brown. Drain fat. Stir in celery, carrots, onions, and garlic. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, basil, rice, and water. Cover, and simmer until rice is cooked, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and mix in Monterey Jack, Cheddar, and Mozzarella cheeses.
  4. Place peppers upright on a baking sheet. Stuff each pepper with the chorizo mixture. Sprinkle extra cheese on top.
  5. In a small bowl, combine tomato soup with just enough water to give the soup the consistency of gravy. Pour generously over peppers. Cover with foil.
  6. Bake in preheated oven about 30 minutes.

I modified this recipe quite a bit; I used ground beef instead of the chorizo and made a batch of mexican rice instead of plain rice and added it to the mixture using the rest of the ingredients...

Used ground beef and added some chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper. My husband and coworkers loved them!

I can't give this 5 because I didn't stick to it fully. However, it was an excellent starting point. Beware when buying chorizo... if you don't have access to a mexican buthcher shop that ma...

Really good. The grocery store was running short on green bell peppers. Red peppers work well too.

These were very good. My husband and kids loved them...I made them with homemade chorizo which I highly reccomend I use Anne's homemade chorizo from this site its simple and quick to make. Inste...
