Rated 1 out of 5 by from I saw this recipe while trying to find something new and fun to make for my husband and myself. I saw this recipe while trying to find something new and fun to make for my husband and myself. I did exactly as directions specified, but was not impressed with the turnout. There was too much going on to really enjoy them. The Bar-B-Q sauce seemed to be too much for my taste. I would suggest using the sauce you prefer instead of the one in the recipe, and not put too much. My husband will eat anything and he was't impressed. I will continue to search for new recipes, beacause there are plenty other good ones to choose from, but would not suggest this one.

I am one of those people that will try anything atleast once and that is all that I will try this recipe. The peppers fell apart when I tried to put them on the plate, the sauce was not very good, and they smelled a little funny. I managed to choke down about half and my son was not very happy with the dinner selection. My husband was a trooper and stuck with it until half way through and he gave up as well. I think if a different sauce was used, this recipe would work, but not with the BBQ.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the crock pot to make this. I used the crock pot to make this. I used 3 red and 3 green peppers and mushroom spaghetti sauce. I also used the pepper tops and diced them up in place of the peas. And instead of Velveeta I used 1 1/2 c. mixed shredded cheese. and cooked brown rice. I used a tiny bit too much sauce. My parents were very pleased though. I think it would have tasted better if someone else made it. Why is it things just taste better when other people make them? lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did make some changes to this recipe. I did make some changes to this recipe. I replaced the BBQ sauce with tomato sauce, replaced the peas with onions and used brown rice and replaced the cheese with a 4 cheese mix. I did use 3 green peppers and 3 red peppers. This dish does have a nice flavor to it. I loved it as there was hardly any work do it and I love using my slow cooker! My Husband and Daughter loved it. My husband told me to put this on his "A" list.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I make stuffed peppers all the time and thougth that doing this way would save me some time. I make stuffed peppers all the time and thougth that doing this way would save me some time. It did save time, but the result was awful. My husband said they were good, but he will eat anything. The texture was a real turn off. They were very mushy. I think that they would have been better if the meat had been cooked prior to stuffing the peppers. I will continue to play with recipe until I get right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My whole family enjoyed these even my kids - which is quite a feat. My whole family enjoyed these even my kids - which is quite a feat. They didn't eat the peppers, but loved the meat filling. I doubled the meat in the recipe and will continue to do that. Next time I'm going to put the Velveeta on later. The cheese melted and cooked through the pepper, which was fabulous, but what was left on top burned around the edges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved it! We loved it!! I made some changes I used ground turkey instead of pork and Tomatoe sauce with fresh diced tomatos instead of Barbq. I added Onion, Garlic, and diced tomatos to the rice and turkey mixture. I put the cheese at the last moment and added shredded mozarella cheddar blend cheese on top. Let it all melt and served!! Awesome so many flavors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Loved it! I used orange bell peppers, a pepper-jack cheese and frozen peas and chopped carrots (the only way I can get my boyfriend to eat his vegetables is to mix it in something that would be too hard to pick it all out :). We loved it all. I just wish I had a bigger Crockpot so I could make this for all my friends when they come over for dinner.
