Stuffed peppers are generally rather easy to make; there are so many ways to go about doing them. Here I used lamb; so if you are a fan of Greek food then perhaps you might enjoy these! You can use red or green peppers or a combo of both. The banana pepper adds a little bit of sweetness to it as well as some spice.
