This dish can go from mild to wild, depending on the peppers you pick. Low carb and diabetic friendly as well.

"Made as a main dish, added some leftover rice, a touch of breadcrumbs and egg before stuffing. Just before baking I added chopped ham to some and extra cheese to others. Was a big hit and good for a weeknight . The skins did not slide off my cubanelle peppers so I just left them on. Served with salsa."

Preparation

You need to pick peppers that are large enough to hold some filling. I chose Anaheims. Briefly roast the peppers over an open flame (or under the broiler) to blister the skin. Rub off the skin and remove the seeds from each pepper through a slit down the side. With smaller peppers it may be easier to remove the top and remove the seeds & veins with an apple corer. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and saute the vegetables enough to soften them (but not so much that they lose color). About 4 - 5 minutes should work. The add the cheeses and mix thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350

Using a spoon (or a plastic bag with a corner snipped) fill each pepper about 90% full. Place them on a baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly.

Serve hot.

NOTES:

Your choice of peppers controls the number of peppers you need. Larger peppers hold more filling so you need fewer. Large jalapeno or caribe peppers hold a lot less so you'll need more of them. Smaller peppers can be filled from the top, capped with a bacon strip, and roasted vertically in a wire rack.

The choice of vegetables is limited only by your imagination and availability. Go for a mix of colors and flavors.

Using Anaheim peppers each (app 200g) serving contains an estimated:

I would not make this again. The flavors together were very unusual.

Did not enjoy flavors of ingredients together

Did not like flavor at all. I even tried adding more cheese and flavoring it with a few extra spices after my first taste, but it was still the same. Would not fix again.

Didn't cook peppers beforehand but stuffed and cooked for bit longer - prefer not too cooked peppers. Served with rocket salad.
