This recipe, which I discovered on pinterest, naturally, did not indicate that one should pulverize the vegetables in a food processor to begin, but that is exactly what I did (not intentionally - but I got distracted and things happened).
I had to really smoosh my peppers into the crock pot. but smoosh them I did, and they fit just like the recipe said they should.
I used ground turkey in my recipe instead of beef or pork, and I also left out the tomato paste in favor of dumping a can of tomato sauce over the top of my peppers.
I set my crockpot to cook on low for 9 hours, then threw some cheese on top when I got home from work for a little extra something. The peppers were good, but I have one caveat: you really need to season the stuffing MUCH MORE than the recipe says. They were bland. I added extra seasoning to mine, and they were still bland. And nobody wants a bland pepper. Otherwise, they were super-filling and easy, so I plan on trying them again. I will report back.
These, however, are in no way, shape, or form bland:

I am loving the subtle color-blocked snakeskin and think these would be amazingly versatile. Happy birthday to me?!
