beef and pork stuffed peppers

i was away on vacation, visiting my sister and together, we made something up and i coined a new term. this recipe will appear here soon after i finish perfecting what to put in it. until then, i'm going through my backcatalogue and hoping to improve on some things that i made in the past. the is one of the first dishes i ever tried to make. that time, i was just throwing random things that i could find around the house. this time, everything is a bit more calculated, but feel free to substitute or add anything you want.
