These are a hit with family and friends. I prefer the yellow, red, and/or orange bell peppers since the green ones often turn bitter. For those unfamiliar, Boudain is a cajun sausage, consisting of ground pork, cooked rice and spices in a sausage casing. It is quite spicy and goes well with the sweetness of the peppers. Hope you enjoy it!
