    Made this for dinner this evening. It was very easy to prepare. Tastes great. I did substitute fresh tomatoes for the stewed tomatoes as I had a few left from the end of the garden! Made this a second time and added sliced mushrooms. Even Better!! - 9/4/08

    I make stuffed green peppers all the time and thought I would try this healthier version with ground turkey and red peppers for extra Vitamin C. I added a little tomato paste which added exactly what this recipe needed. My hubby and son loved them. Next time I will add a can of corn to the mixtur - 1/13/09

    I made this recipe last night. I didn't read the part about only 1/2 lb of ground turkey and ended up putting in an entire pound which caused me to add extra chili powder, an extra can of tomatoes and to double the brown rice. It was very tasty and fresh. - 12/10/08

  • Great recipe. I did use 1/4 lb ground turkey and a 1/4 turkey sausage instead of 1/2 lb ground turkey. I also used yellow sweet peppers to give it more of a sweet taste. Love this recipe - 12/30/07
