      Sounds delicious. My son loves salsa but others in the family do not. Leaving the salsa off gives everyone the option of adding it if they wish to do so.

    Husband and I enjoy eating stuffed peppers. The kids only want the filling and won’t eat the pepper. I normally don’t fix this dish for this reason. Might just fix enough for hubby and I and the kids can have something else.
