    Do you cook the stuffed peppers with any broth or liquid or do you just place the frozen peppers directly into the crockpot?

    Thanks!

    these were amazing! I’m not a huge stuffed pepper fan, but liked the idea of hot sausage and cauliflower ‘rice’. They cooked up perfect! I used 2 for lunches and my coworkers are begging for the recipe… and i gave some to my mom and she’s in love, lol. I do NOT like rice in general… except with sushi, lol. I love, love, love that there is no rice in these. The next time I make them (which may be this weekend, lol) I’m going to try a whole head of cauliflower. My mom was surprised at how easy this was. Thanks!!!!! 🙂

    Is the meat pre-cooked?

    Hi, for some reason I cannot pull up the link for the shopping lists..is it possible you can send it to me? or re-post the link? I cant wait to try these meals for my family of 5!!! Awesome ideas!

    I’m hoping to make these next week; as a college student, if I made these in the crockpot all at once and then froze them, would they still turn out?

  6. Laura says:

    I’m also wondering if you put any liquid in the crock pot with the peppers. Please let me know! Thanks!

    Does one defrost the stuffed peppers first?

  8. Kendra says:

    Are they meant to be thawed before cooking? I was under the assumption that you can cook them from frozen. In other words, does the cooking instructions on low for 6 hours apply if frozen, thawed, or both?

    • Jessica says:

      This recipe is for putting them in frozen in the crock pot for 6 hours, but you could thaw them before if you wanted, you would just need to shorten the cooking time – probably only 3-4 hours at the most.

  9. Kendra says:

    Thank you! I’m putting them in the crock pot right now for dinner!

  10. Tracy says:

    Any idea how much dry rice I’d use if I didn’t want to go to the trouble of using the cauliflower? I already have rice on hand, so I’m just going to use that…. Thanks!

    We cooked these and the meat doesn’t seem to look cooked throughly. We had it cook on low for the full 6 hrs and then on warm till dinner time. I even checked the temperature of them and they were at 178ish degrees before I turned them on low. But the meat is red in color. Is that because of the tomato paste?
    Thanks much.

    I tried to make these yesterday they smelled so good cooking all day long. I used ground beef instead of ground sausage I would definitely recommend cooking meat for this recipe. My peppers came out very mushy and uneatiable. I’m not sure if this was because of the grease from the beef or not. Does ground hot sausage get this way if you don’t cook the meat first?
