Stuffed Peppers are so easy to change up flavor wise. These are made with a Mexican taco flavor. I used cous-cous instead of rice because my son doesn't really like rice. But you can use rice, cracked wheat or quinoa whatever you like. I also use mild chilies but for a spicier dish you could use jalapenos. For the meat in this recipe I used ground Italian sausage because its what I had in, but you can use ground beef, pork, turkey or chicken. Mix and match to your favorites.
