"I have been using this recipe that I found in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook since I found it in 1971. It is the best stuffed pepper recipe there is. Boyfriends and husband loved it! Gave the recipe to a friend who made it for a crowd of high school lacrosse players and they raved!! Personally, I use a bit more worchestershire sauce, cheddar cheese and stewed tomatoes instead of plain. A wonderful family style recipe. Love the tri-color peppers. "- Natasha639

Stir in 4 ounces sharp process American cheese, shredded (1 cup). Stuff peppers; stand upright in 10x6x1-1/2 inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serves 6.

rab143 1 month agoWell I started with 12 peppers and ended with 2!! It was very tasty and everyone seemed to like it. I added tomato sauce around the peppers when placing in the oven. It was very good!!
Steph6878 1 month agoI have made these several times and they are amazing! I use cheddar cheese and dice the caps to throw in the mixture. I also add garlic and smother with seasoned tomato sauce. I have 5 kids and not only do they all love it, but my 5yr old that usually takes an hour to eat, is the first one done! :-)
MauraSpeckt 3 months agoNot very good, I rarely use processed cheese and it definitely didn't taste good with the rice. Not to make again.

Tsroque 10 months agoVery good dish... My husband loved it, and he rarely compliments my cooking =P Instead of using uncooked rice, i just mixed in a 1/2 cup of leftover cooked rice later on.
Summergirl520 10 months agoAdded garlic to meat. Used Cheddar instead of American. Blended a red sauce from a can of tomatoes, ketchup, garlic, salt & italian seas and poured over top. Last 5 min more cheese: TH BOMB!

laura_dinten 11 month agoThis was so easy to make and my kids loved it! I felt it needed a bit more salt but otherwise it was a hit in my home
Bonnieenders 11 month agoWow - I didn't expect these to be so good given how simple they were. I made no changes and was impressed with the flavor and texture. I really liked the 5 min pre-boil technique.
summerpls 11 month agoAbsolutely perfect! I've made Stuffed Peppers from other recipes and this one is my favourite! I did add 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic to the meat mixture and 1 Cup Tomato Juice instead of water. Did not boil the Peppers as we like a little crunch to them and used tri-colours for the Peppers. Very Yummy!
