    You can bump the heat to HIGH in the last hour or two of crockin’, Bailey, if you would like them softer…just a thought!

    The peppers were still a little hard but still good! I used ground turkey but next time I will do beef just for the flavor! :D

    I haven’t done that Baily, but if you do let us know how it turns out. Just be sure the ones on top are completely supported. The peppers get really soft after being crocked for a while.

    Could I stack my bell peppers on top of each other, to fit more in my slow cooker?

    People are always asking for great freezer recipes…what a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

    Can’t wait to try these. I made the filling and stuffed the peppers and put them in individual bags in the freezer. I have a 10 month old and a hubby that works 13+ hours a day. I try to do as much ahead of time as I can. I will post my results, hopefully next week!

    Sorry it didn’t work out for y’all, Aurora. If you ever want to try it again, you might try cooking the turkey meat halfway on the stove top then drain and kick up the spices.

    I just made this tonight and sadly was disappointed. The ground turkey was so mushy and there was not alot of flavor. Sorry Crockin girls!

    LOL Mandy! Your second comment made me laugh!! When we posted this on Facebook, some people said they use tomato sauce instead of marinara. I say, go for it! Like Paulette said, just a preference :)

    Rachael, let us know how the rice works out.

    Happy Crockin’ y’all!!

    Mmmm. Cannot wait to try this tonight! Happy St. Patty’s Day!

  12. Rachael R.

    Sounds delicious! I might add rice instead of the potato, though. Can’t wait to give this a try!

  13. Paulette T.

    I’m sure you can use tomato soup but it would taste like soup instead of marinara. You might want to “doctor” your soup up with italian seasoning and garlic powder. Truly just a taste preference based on tomato soup or marinara.

    Holy horrible spelling errors and punctuation! Sorry!!

  15. Mandy S.

    Sounds yummy. Could you use tomato soup I wonder instead of the marinara?? My friends grannie always used tomatos soup over her peppers. I’m not sure if she diluted it or not?? I’m thinking no…. does anyone know?
