This recipe was a great starting point, but the second time I made them I definitely "kicked it up a notch." I added 3 cloves of garlic, doubled the Worcestershire sauce, added a tablespoon of tomato paste, and added some cumin and cayenne. I also substituted light cheddar for the cheddar.
If you soak the rice in a half cup of hot water while the meat mixture is cooking, it helps to soften the rice. The first time I made them, the rice was still a little crunchy; second time (when I soaked the rice), it was perfect.
I also chose not to pre-cook the peppers, as we prefer them crunchy.
