Sweet peppers are an excellent filling for meat, rice, and of course, cheese. This is our favourite recipe but customization options are eternal. We use grated Monterey Jack, but feel free to substitute any other cheese on hand. You can also use another ground protein (pork, turkey, or chicken) in place of the beef. You can even use Italian sausage! Once you make this iteration, we encourage you to create your own and show us the results !
