My husband worked this recipe up for a chance from my mom's stuffed pepper recipe. Turned out really well. In fact, it just might a little than my mom's recipe.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The filling for these stuffed green peppers is delicious! I found myself snacking on it as I stuffed the peppers. The seasoning is what makes it so special. It has a Tex-Mex flavor and the chipotle tabasco sauce gives these a nice kick. Yumm-o!
