Crock Pot Stuffed Bell Peppers

My daughter Rachel's bff, Loren, recently shared a recipe she found on Facebook
for crock pot stuffed bell peppers.  I thought the recipe looked tasty and I liked the idea of cooking the bell peppers in the crock pot but I of course had to tweak the recipe.
I started by adding  1 pound of hot Italian sausage which I browned along with 1 pound of ground beef.  I used a16 oz.bag of frozen corn and a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce.
I eliminated the salt, garlic and pepper since I was using the spicy sausage, did a 2 cup combination of cheddar and mozzarella grated cheese, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce and a 1/4 cup chopped onion.
After browning the two meats I mixed all the ingredients together and slightly overfilled my cleaned and seeded red bell peppers.
I placed my peppers inside my crock pot and topped them with a 2 to 1 mixture of ketchup and sriracha hot sauce.  I always need to add a little kick to my food.
I cooked them on high for 3 1/2 hours and Voila.

The stuffed peppers were very tasty and since I had doubled the recipe,  I put the leftover meat mixture in the freezer so I just need more bell peppers to make them again.
