    Love this! My son is a vegan and I always want to fix him something that is good that he will like. Well, I like it too! We had a family reunion and I took this so he would be sure to have sthing good and not chemically processed! Super! Thanks! - 9/25/08

    Delicious!! I used pinto beans instead of kidney beans. I also added mushrooms and garlic. This is easy to make and it was really good! Even my boyfriend, who is not a vegetarian, loved it! I will definitely make this again! - 4/18/10

    With a double recipe I started with 1 TBSP of virgin olive oil to help sweat the onions. Remember to drawing and wash can beans if you are inclined to use them. Also, make sure to use the pepper tops by adding them back to the onions (unblanched). Instead of the 4 cheese mixture, I used 2 oz Cheddar - 3/2/10

    You can't go wrong with Stuffed Bell Peppers! This is a good recipe alone, however, I am making this today for a cook out at my cousin's house and I am adding soy crumbles to add a type of "meat" to it. And if you are making this recipe always feel free to stray from it a bit. Spice it up a bit! - 7/18/09
