This was my first attempt at stuffed bell peppers in quite a while. I vaguely recall earlier efforts as not being terribly successful. Still, I bought some beautiful bell peppers and needed a dinner recipe that would feature them. I tried Chef John's version of stuffed bell peppers, and they were a HUGE hit! I modified the recipe slightly based on what I had in the cupboard. I used red and yellow bell peppers rather than green. I didn't have Italian sausage on hand, so I used 1.3 lbs of ground beef. To give them a spicy kick, I substituted a can of Rotel for the diced tomatoes, and a small can of chopped green chiles for the Italian parsley. I didn't have finely grated cheese on hand, but I did have a shredded four cheese blend, so I used that instead. They were so good, I had one for breakfast and we are looking forward to leftovers tonight! This recipe will definitely become a frequent favorite for my household!
