Top tip to get a tender bell pepper that isn’t raw and crunchy? Add some water to a bowl with your cut bell peppers. Pop this in the microwave for 5 minutes and let it cool while you make your filling.

    Skip the microwaving step and place water n the baking dish that you bake the peppers in. Bake peppers longer to get the same outcome for the peppers. I have another stuffed pepper recipe I do that with.
