  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chorizo, bacon, and onion in the hot skillet until the sausage and bacon are completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Rinse mixture with hot water to remove as much grease as possible; drain.
  3. Mix the chorizo mixture, rice, chile peppers, diced tomatoes, Monterey Jack cheese, and salsa together in a large bowl.
  4. Arrange bell peppers in a baking dish. Spoon filling into the peppers. Place pepper tops on the stuffed peppers. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove the foil and continue baking until the tops of the pepper and any exposed rice are slightly browned, about 30 minutes more.
  6. Whisk enchilada sauce and ranch dressing mix together in a microwave-safe bowl.
  7. Heat enchilada sauce mixture in microwave oven for 2 minutes.
  8. Whisk sour cream into the enchilada sauce mixture; drizzle over the stuffed peppers.

Great kicked up (spiced up) version of an old tried and true! Never was a big fan of stuffed peppers until now! Chorizo and roasted peppers made it so much better!

Great recipe! I used vegan chorizo and could have made it all vegan with vegan queso and vegan sour cream! I did add one 15 ounce can of black beans. The sour cream addition did not make sense....

Excellent recipe. I did make a couple of adjustments. I omitted the bacon (not missed), used a mix of cheddar and pepper jack cheeses and increased the overall cheese quantity to 1 1/2 cups, a...

Didn't use bacon in it, but the flavor was amazing! Keeping this recipe!

This was different and tasty and I really enjoyed the enchilada sauce mixture. My only complaint is that the bacon got completely lost in the dish and I felt it was a waste of bacon. The next ti...
