Can enchilada stuffed peppers be frozen?
I get this question all the time! The answer is YES, you can freeze stuffed peppers! Be sure everything is fully cooked and cooled before freezing, and be sure to wrap them well (in plastic wrap) and store in an airtight container.

Have a question. When I usually make stuffed peppers, I parboil first. Do the peppers come out tender enough without doing that? Would love to try as is (easier).
Yes, these peppers come out tender!

My mom and I really enjoyed these, they are super simple to make and taste really good, they’re not quite enough to be a dinner by themselves but if you add a little beans and rice to the bottom or even on the side they will be very filling. I’m 16 and this was the third meal I’ve made without help from my parents and they really enjoyed it!
Thanks so much for sharing, Trevor!

OMG. These were Soooo Good ! I followed everything to the T. But then I added one jalapeno pepper sliced thinly to give it an extra kick. And added another 1/4 cup of the Medium Enchilada sauce. And a little extra onion too. I used the Red Yellow and Orange Peppers. I Loved them and Can’t wait to make them again ! Thanks Becky 😎
