I made these the other day by cleaning out the cupboard! They were a hit with the hubs who is a stuffed pepper connoisseur (if that's possible!).

I overflowed from the crock pot so I baked two extra large one in the oven and they came out just as good, if not better.

Tried cutting back on the fat and they still had a rich yummy taste.
