Mexican Beef-Stuffed Peppers

“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. Because he loves fajitas and tacos, I created these peppers with all his favourite flavours tucked inside.” – Nicole Sullivan, Arvada, Colorado
