When I was little my mom would make stuffed green peppers. Probably the same way every mom in America made them--with rice, ground beef, onions and ketchup. And they were good. But a little plain. So. I've kinda kicked them up a notch. Crumbled sweet Italian sausage, rice, mushrooms, stewed tomatoes, lots of garlic, cumin, smoked paprika and brown, bubbly Monterey Jack cheese. The perfect comfort food for the streak of cold rainy weather we're having lately. Oh yeah, and don't forget to pass the sour cream.
