Slow-Cooked Stuffed Peppers
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 3 hours
This was amazing! It worried me a bit with the uncooked rice but it turned out perfect. Just enough spice for my gang. The crockpot is awesome because they fit in it snug so no worries about the peppers falling over. This will be on our regular rotation.
Meatless? Low-fat? High-fiber? Reasonably low-Cal? What's not to love? I haven't made it yet, but I love everything that goes into it, and I just bought a new slow cooker. I will increase the spices a bit, because we like really robust flavors. Has anyone thought of refried beans instead of black beans? For the first time out, I will do black beans.

To the ladies who did not know what converted rice is, just use Uncle Ben's. It's a converted rice.
I have a question. The rice is not cooked before adding to the pepper stuffing? There is no liquid added when these are cooking. The rice will cook all the way by the time the peppers are done?
Delicious! Even my toddlers ate them!
This is one of my favorite vegetarian dishes! My family loves it! So glad I discovered this dish! Thank you!
Good vegetarian dish! This was my first time trying a stuffed pepper. Given the pepper jack, salsa and seasonings I was worried this would be too spicy for my teens, but it wasn't at all (they did top with sour cream).I will probably increase the heat a bit next time. I used regular long grain white rice, since I was not sure what "converted" rice was. (Looked it up after I made it - it's quick cooking rice). I will use this next time or just cook longer with a little water (as other reviewers did). I will also try using reduced fat cheddar and adding either green chilies or jalapeno and possibly Rotel. Thanks for a new, easy to prepare, healthy recipe!
Great recipe! Slow cooking is great but it can be made a lot healthier. Instead of a crockpot, I used MEC pure clay pot for this recipe. It cooked a lot faster and the flavor was all natural and enhanced. You should try that and I promise you'd never cook in a crockpot again.
I made these recently. They were the balm. Family members from age 22 to 82 loved them. No meat? they said. They were pleasantly surprised of how delicious they were. This recipe is a keeper. I only cooked them for 5 hours on low.
