SO HOW'D IT GO?

Made this for Fat Tuesday.  I added a chopped hot pepper and garlic to the stuffing and substituted a spicy brat for the Soyrizo.  I sauteed the celery with the onions, garlic and brat in lieu of microwaving.  Altogether, the perfect amount of stuffing for 4 large peppers.  Awesome.  So tasty.  My omni boyfriend loved it.  Even told me he thought it was one of the best meals I've made...and I cook a lot!  Thank you so much for this recipe.

This recipe was AWESOME! My boyfriend who hates tomatoes, hates onions, hates peppers, and is a meat eater, LOVED it... he said he was super surprised and loved EVERYTHING about it! :-) I used diced fire roasted tomatoes in green chiles because that was all I had and it turned out really well. I also added a little chili powder, some cumin, garlic, and I doubled the cajun seasoning! REALLY AWESOME recipe though! Thanks!
