Stuffed mini peppers

This is one of the variations that I make stuffed peppers.I like to use mini peppers for couple of reasons; # 1. It’s great for parties or potlucks,#2. You get to taste more pepper. Of course if you prefer to use regular bell pepper then go ahead.I personally like to eat them with the liquid, because that’s how my mother would serve it to us as kids.
