“I developed this recipe one day when I had some green peppers with a couple of bad spots on them. I just cut out the bad parts and used them anyway. Since then this is the only way I make it anymore. I never really liked the big chunks of meat in a stuffed pepper anyhow. I am sure someone else has done this too, now some of my family makes it this way too.”
