This is my favorite version of stuffed peppers and super easy! Stuffing with chicken, cheese, and cilantro makes the peppers very flavorful and fun! I make this as a meal with a side of rice, but can also be made as cute appetizers.

All I could taste was mayonnaise! My husband liked it when he put a lot of hot sauce on top of it instead of the sour cream. For me it's just runny mayonnaise and our daughter didn't like it either. Read More

I liked this recipe. I used flavorful homemade shredded chicken and added canned corn and olives to the chicken-cheese-mayo mix. I also sprinkled both mozzarella and cheddar cheeses on top. The only thing I didn't like was how uncooked the bell-peppers were. If I repeated the recipe I would cook them a little before adding filling and baking. Makes a good meal if you cook some Spanish rice to go along with it. Read More

This is excellent and fits the happy hormones diet! My husband and mom both loved it and said it could be a weekly dinner. I did paraboil the peppers (and used a variety of colors). Very pretty presentation. I dressed it with not only the sour cream but also a scoop of salsa. Yummy! Read More

My family liked it. I mixed the sour cream in with the mayo. May have added a bit too much dried cilantro though (store didn't have fresh). It was yummy though Read More

Good basic recipe to start with. Five stars with my revisions. I combined the chicken with a can of corn a can of diced greed chilies finely diced onion a can of sliced olives shredded sharp cheddar cheese the bunch of cilantro some lemon pepper cayenne and stuffed them into red bell peppers. No mayo. I baked them at 375 for 30 minutes covered. I removed them and topped them with some shredded pepper jack cheese and returned them to the oven to melt the cheese. Delicious. Next time I will add a can of Rotel tomatoes and a little more cheddar. UPDATE: I made these again tonight with left-over turkey. This time I added the Rotel tomatoes 3 cloves of garlic and also 2 cups of cottage cheese as well as 2 cups of cheddar this time. After baking I topped them with sour cream and diced avocado. Wonderful. Read More

I would have to say that I really liked this recipe. It was different and I like different. I did add chopped fresh spinach and grated parmesan and romano cheese to mine. I am a cheese fanatic! So more cheese makes a dish sing. I was sure to parboil the peppers for about 8 minutes before stuffing them so they would be nice and tender with just a little crunch. You could also microwave the peppers for about 3 minutes to soften them. I also baked mine covered at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes and an additional 10 minutes uncovered. I am going to eat the rest with a marinara sauce and see how that taste which shall be fabulous. I say try it and watch how much you will enjoy it. Read More

I only gave this four stars because I would have liked the Peters to be a little softer. I will have to cook a little longer next time I make them. other than that I thought this was a great dish. Read More
