“These mild flavored peppers have a filling that is sweet and somewhat reminiscent of the sweet tamales we get during the holidays. Cook and prep time do Not include time need to make the corn bread as I quite often make it either the night before. If in a time crunch you could always buy a pre-made 9x9 corn bread.”
