Any idea of the calorie count?

Meridian Meats says:

Hi Cin,
Because this is a homemade recipe, unfortunately, we do not have the exact calorie count. As well, the calorie count would vary based on type of cheese, pepper, canned tomatoes, etc. Our best guess based on the ingredients would be around 500 calories per stuffed pepper.

You forgot rice in the ingredients list

Meridian Meats says:

Hi Brad,

Thank you for noticing our error. We have now added 1/2 cup of uncooked rice into the ingredients. Thanks for letting us know 🙂

The photos look like there is corn niblets in the stuffing. If not corn, what is it? The cheese would have melted into the mixture.
