Shrimp Stuffed Green Peppers

Shrimp Stuffed Green Peppers is a great twist to the traditional green stuffed pepper.  I love shrimp so mixing it with the green pepper was a great idea.  I think this would be a great way to change up the pace of the traditional ground meat stuffed peppers.  Perfect when you find a deal on shrimp too!
