“What I love most about these stuffed peppers is that the meat goes in uncooked, so it forms kind of a solid "meatball" in the pepper. I think these are much better than the stuffed peppers where the meat is cooked first and stays "loose". If someone in your family does not like peppers, make some meatballs from the mixture and drop them in the pot along with the stuffed peppers. Enjoy!”
