Very good. I made it with red and green peppers , I followed the recipe the only variation I made was mixing moz cheese in with the meat mixture which I used ground Ckn instead of turkey and sprinkled some oregano on top of the peppers once done.The meat mixture would be good with spaghetti noodles and garlic bread also

This was crying out for some hot pepper and chopped cilantro, which I added along with about a cup of cooked brown rice. I stirred in some pepper jack cheese after the filling cooked, and instead of cheese I put some ketchup on top. I, like some other reviewers, boiled the peppers for just a couple of minutes before stuffing. Superb!

My husband perferred red pepper better than the green...said it was a little sweeter. Also add a little salt and pepper to the ground chicken. I figured it was about 5 points if you are on WW, but you can only have a half serving.

Tasty, just add a little salt and pepper to taste. Although the picture shows green peppers, red or yellow are much sweeter.

It was surprisingly delicious. I also loved the ginger flavor. I boiled the peppers first to soften. Also I didn't have tomato paste on hand so I used diced tomatoes. I will definitely make this again. I might even add rice like typical stuffed peppers.

Wow, this was delicious! The flavor of the ginger and the tangy tomato paste really gave this dish a bright flavor. (1 6oz. can of tomato paste was just perfect.) I did not alter from the recipe for my portion, but I added 1 cup of shredded mozzerella to the sauce before transferring the mixture to his peppers because he really loves cheese. My husband liked this really well.
It's something different. Yum!
