I just made these tonight and they were amazing!! I only had 2 peppers, so I have leftover filling, but I put it in the freezer to save for later. Thanks for the great recipe!

Made these for dinner – way better than meaty stuffed peppers!! Took a photo, let me know, if you want to use it for your post.

I made these tonight for dinner. Thank you so much! They were delicious. I grew up eating traditional stuffed peppers, and these are such a nice change from the heavy, tired feeling you always get after the originals. I think the only change I’ll make next time is to add additional spices.
