    I decided to use yellow rice. The flavors were so good!

    Could have used even longer baking to really cook the peppers, but other than that the flavors were there and really tasty.

    It had a nice flavor to it. not to hot, not to boring. But don't be gentle on the beans, or you will feel hungry afterwards.

    Turned out great! Added a little more cayenne pepper and we weren't disappointed.

    It turned out like the pictures, however it was a bit much rice and the taste of the celery didn’t really come through. In general not a Tex Mex flavor fan so that’s why 3 stars. But if you do like it I would recommend.

    It was very tasty and the celery adds a nice crunch to it and the spices all together were phenomenal. 5 stars!

    It turned out just ok. It needs more flavor and needs something to bind the contents together so you can easily eat with a fork.

    Amazing!!! I used Red bell peppers instead of yellow and 35 minutes worked perfectly. I will be using the same mixture with quorum fake meat for burritos in the future.

    This was AMAZING! We stuffed both Anaheim peppers and bell peppers! So delicious! Our kids went back for seconds! We also made vegan queso and it was yummy!

    I didn't care for this one so much. It lacked something in flavor that I can't quite put my finger on. It also had too much cayenne for my taste. I don't mind spicy foods when it supplements the flavor. But when the spice hits you hard and the flavor doesn't come along with it, I'm just not a big fan.

    Turned out great! Only thing I would add is tamato or tomato paste to the stuffing mix if you are eating as the full meal to give it a but more body.

    I feel like it was too much thyme but otherwise really good: even my kids ate it including my picky eater.
