Stuffed Peppers (Vegetarian)

Submitted by: NATBAER

Introduction

This was my first try at stuffed peppers and it was a HUGE hit with my family. I eyeballed the seasonings, so I am sure I used more than a tsp of salt and red pepper. We like things spicy here. I recommend tasting the filling before you stuff the peppers. Just adjust the spices to your taste. This was my first try at stuffed peppers and it was a HUGE hit with my family.
