    If I ever want to impress anyone, I'm going to make these! So good and great presentation. I used a pound of ground turkey and cheddar instead of the colby. I also forgot to put cheese inside the pepper, so it cut the cheese calories in half and didn't sacrifice the great taste. Love it! If I wasn't on a diet, I would eat the filling with tortilla chips!

    I have never made stuffed peppers before, and my husband said no one could make them as good as his (late) mother. So I had big shoes to fill. He was skeptical, but said mine blew his Moms out of the water! I made a double batch. Made 12 overstuffed halves (easily). I threw a few extra things in... I didn't have enough salsa, so I added a can of garlic and herb tomatoes. I also diced a green pepper and onions and added them to the mix. I added a sprinkled tablespoon of taco seasoning to the meat too. They were so very good! I tried them out on company too, and THEY were asking for the left overs! WOW! :) I realize I could do so many different things with this recipe. I can't wait to try more variations!
