  • Summary

    I grew up eating stuffed peppers and thought my husband would immediately love them as well. He didn't at first, but then I created this slow-cooked recipe. He loves fajitas and tacos, so I created these peppers with all of his favorite flavors tucked inside.—Nicole Sullivan, Arvada, Colorado
