How to Cook Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed Pepper is a baked vegetable and meat dish combined. Cooked ground meat is stuffed in bell peppers and baked until done. Although ground beef is the commonly used ingredient, you may use any ground meat that suits you.

In this recipe, I used ground chicken as a substitute for ground beef. I feel that using ground chicken will make this dish healthier and cut-off the calories.
