  1. My husband and I love Stuffed a Green Peppers! I can’t wait to try them like this using the crockpot!

  2. Cristen says:

    My hubby can not have anything with tomatoes, what would be a good substitution?

    • Melissa@StockpilingMoms says:

      You could use any vegetable puree – red peppers, pumpkin, carrot – hope this helps

  3. If you use uncooked meat is there a lot of grease inside the peppers?

  4. Emma Jantz says:

    Hi! I’ve never had stuffed green peppers and am looking forward to trying this recipe. I only need to feed myself and one other person; to fill two peppers would you just divide filling ingredients in half? Thanks!

    • I’d use only a third if you’re going to make only 2 peppers. Or you can always make the whole recipe, fill 2-3 peppers and freeze the rest of the meat for later use.

    • they will freeze really well. make the whole recipe and freeze the leftovers for another time.

  5. I followed the directions, actually left the peppers in the slow cooker for over 8 hours since I got off work late. I substituted ground turkey since we don’t keep beef I. The house. The meat was cooked, but the rice never cooked. Where do you think I went wrong? I assume it was bc there was no water inside the bell peppers to cook the rice. Thoughts?

    • Stephanie@StockpilingMoms says:

      I’m not sure as to why your rice didn’t cook but you can precook it next time to see if that helps!

      • probably because there is not a lot of grease in the turkey – I would make the rice as Stephanie suggested

  6. I have tried this and overall love it. I usually precook rice but didn’t this time and must say I like them precooked better. I also only used 3/4 cup of rice instead of full cup and that was still to much. I didn’t have tomato sauce so I used one of the big cans of tomato puree and I added more water, maybe another half to 3/4 can. It turned great.

  7. What size cans of tomato sauce ( how many ounces)?

    • Stephanie@StockpilingMoms says:

      Small cans of tomato sauce I believe they are 8oz or you can use 1 large can of tomato sauce.

  8. I was disappointed in the stuffed peppers. My rice did not cook at all. You should specify that the rice should be cooked.

  9. I used instant white rice and it turned out just fine. But if you’re still worried about how the rice will turn out, precook it.

  10. What would be a good side to serve with these?
