I really enjoyed this dish! I also liked being able to use canned ingredients, since they're convenient and I'm more likely to have all the ingredients. Easy to make and tasty! I will make it again!


I'd prefer if the mixture stayed together better, like "traditional" stuffed peppers.  These tend to fall apart unless you just treat them like a sloppy joe mixture served in carbon-based edible bowls.  Other than that, it was an alright dish.  It wasn't amazing, but I may make it again.


This is perfect for me b/c I'm always stocked with canned foods! lol. Thanks for the great recipe  :)




i loved the filling! I didn't have canned corn or pinto beans so i used a can of mixed veggies and black beans instead. Also wasn't sure what rotel tomatoes were so i used a can of diced tomatoes instead. My basil plant was getting out of control so i added those, a clove of garlic, some extra cumin and braggs instead of salt.  :)>>>
Thanks for the recipe!
