Mince Stuffed Peppers are a delight to cook and eat. They are very simple to prepare and using different colour bell peppers makes it a beautiful site. I often add a hint of chilli or paprika for additional heat. Also use mozzarella instead of cheddar but gruyere and any other cheese can be used. Served as a main dish, side dish and as a starter making this an adaptable recipe.
