Well friends, I'm sad to say we ate the last of our garden bell peppers with this recipe. I'm happy to say that they were absolutely delicious. I can't wait for more garden peppers to make it again! We made this with deer meat, a.k.a. "venison". It seems to sound more appealing to people if you say venison instead of deer. Same thing, same great taste. You could also make these with ground turkey or beef, or even add black beans instead of the meat for a vegetarian option. I hope you enjoy! Everyone (even the babies) in my family liked these!
