  • I used just a dusting of cheese on top and omitted it from the peppers - topping them mostly with tomato sauce. I used 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp smoky hot paprika and 1 tsp cumin instead of the other seasonings and it is close to SAZON - 8/6/12

  • I substituted lean ground turkey for the beef. I also added mushrooms, celery, onions, and fresh spinach to the meat. Next time I want to try substituting the rice for quinoa. - 1/26/12

  • I think this is a relatively healthy meal. I chose to substitute with ground turkey and fajita seasoning for more spice. This is a good recipe to experiment with. It was easy to make as well. - 3/5/08

  • Still excellent with a few substitutions. I used a packet of taco seasoning because my grocery store does not carry the seasoning suggested - still turned out great! I made them up the night before and completed the last 5 minutes of baking for lunch today...a great way to use up leftover rice! - 7/10/07
