Reese's Stuffed Green Peppers

Edna Kidwell


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.

The filling for these stuffed green peppers is delicious! We found ourselves snacking on it as we 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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

  4. Place both dishes in preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.
