Ratings & Reviews



Absolutely Love this one. Add a little more BBQ sauce for extra flavor!


very yummy..i used a garlic bbq sauce and added onion...but very filling and tasty


Everyone in our family loved it, right down to the one year old! The only change I made was to use red peppers instead of green, we liked the sweetness that brought to the dish.


Kind of bland


My husband said these were the best stuffed peppers that I've made to date. I used soy ground beef, rather than meat, since we are vegetarian, and it was awesome! I will definitely make it again. My only problem was, like someone else said, the bottom of the peppers became a little bitter. Otherwise they were great!


The pepper became very bitter. The filling was excellent.


very easy, I used ground beef instead of pork, loved this.


I didn't really like the taste of the green pepper in this recipe, i made one orange pepper as well & liked that much more.I also threw in some light red kidney beans & they went very well with this meal.


Very easy, I love that it can be done in the slow cooker. I've made other stuffed peppers that seemed so much more labor intensive. Our whole family enjoyed them, I would definitely make them again.


Easy to make. I added onions instead of peas to the recipe (I love onions, especially with ground beef). I only made three peppers so I had left over stuffing and froze it to use next time. The recipe says it's for four but I found that if you added more of other stuff (cheese, peppers, etc) you could actually make enough for five. We all enjoyed it a lot, the pepper was so soft and moist and tasted really great with the stuffing.


Simply delicious & so easy to make!!!


I wasn't really sure about making stuffed peppers but this turned out quite tasty.


I loved it.


I have used white minute rice and brown minute rice in this recipe both worked out fine.



This was good, but I would use less BBQ sauce next time. The recipe was a bit too tangy as is. Also, the cheese on top became crunchy and inedible, so I would omit that as well. Overall, not bad.


This was a HUGE hit in my house! I doubled the recipe & froze half....If you do this, I recommend adding more BBQ sauce to the meat mixture after it has thawed. This is a definite "keeper" recipe! Thank you :)


Super easy and delicious: the Kraft Kitchens folks just made another instant classic! Made also a variation: Used mild salsa, ground chicken and frozen small vegetable mix (peas, carrots, beans), some Tex Mex spices (about 1 tablespoon) and added a little more minute rice (2/3 cup) so the excedent of water from the salsa is absorbed. Try it, you won't regret


I made this recipe with ground beef instead of pork and frozen corn instead of the peas. It turned out really great. I added some chili powder for a texmex taste.


Did not enjoy this recipe at all. I was expecting the filling to bind a bit more and to have more flavour.


I tried this recipe without peas and instead of shredded cheese I used Parmesan and added onion, garlic and pepper and made up my rice ahead of time and added it to the beef. It was flavorful and delicious.


I used ground beef instead of ground pork and it was amazing! Very easy to make!



healthy peppers use b'less chix brst mixture cook breast 1st


Very easy and tasted OK


Excellent! My family just loved this, and i was able to get 6 peppers out of this recipe and into my slow cooker. They were even better the next day re-heated!!


a really nice change from my usual recipe, lots of flavor. I served with mashed potatoes but they are really a meal on their owm
