These were pretty good. The filling is a little blander than I would have liked-- I would add more salsa. I used brown rice instead of white for an extra-high-fiber meal! Read More

This recipe was very easy to make, although I changed the peppers to a red and yellow mix, the rice to brown rice and the salsa to spicy for added flavor. I didn't plan enough time to cook the rice though (45 mins!) which was the only difficulty - more my fault than anything else. This recipe froze well, so the extra portions make great lunches at work. Read More
