remaining pepper pieces. Stand the peppers upright in a 5-quart electric
In a medium bowl, combine the chopped pepper tops, rice, corn, olives, scallions, seasoned salt, garlic pepper, and 1/4 cup of the tomatoes with their liquid. Mix well. Stuff the peppers with the corn mixture, dividing evenly and packing lightly.
Mix the remaining tomatoes and their liquid with the wine and tomato paste until well blended. Pour over and around the peppers in the slow cooker.
