Chorizo & Bacon Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed PepperSo, I made some peppers. They were delicious. I don’t feel my family liked these as much as I did, but my one spice lover was down with the flu, and the rest of the family prefers food that would be considered “mild”. So although these didn’t go over quite as I thought they would, I still quite enjoyed them. Plus, I increased the bacon significantly from the original recipe, and extra bacon is always a good thing! Right?
