Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! You can use any colored bell pepper that you prefer. I love this recipe cooked in red bell peppers, orange bell peppers or yellow bell peppers. In fact, red bell peppers are usually sweeter in flavor!
If you are adverse against using Velveeta cheese you can use 8 ounces of cream cheese and 8 ounces of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Once melted into the meat and rice mixture you will still have a creamy cheesy filling.
I love the flavor that ground pork sausage adds to this stuffed bell pepper recipe, but feel free to use all ground beef, all ground pork, ground turkey, ground chicken or even ground venison!
