Try about half as much meat, and even ground turkey instead. also brown rice is better for you

I used lean ground turkey and it turned out great! The mixture was yummy even without the red peppers - which is what I had for lunch and added some tortilla chips and some mexican style shredded cheese.

This was delicious! I used lean ground turkey and I did cook the turkey and rice before assembly. I accidentally added an 8oz can of tomato sauce to the meat, but it was good. I seasoned the meat with garlic powder, cayenne pepper, onion flakes, dried cilantro. It was very tasty!

I had to cut back on the ground beef and adjust a bit to work it out, but I've made them twice already and I think they’re GRRREAT! And with HOT salsa, they're fantastic! Great job, mrsjohnson0317!

Is the rice cooked? Is the meat browned? How long in the crock pot?

i'm assuming the hamburger is already browned too

I'm assuming the rice is cooked before you put it in the peppers ? So 1/2 pepper is a serving?
