Emeril's Stuffed Bell Peppers or Sweet Banana Peppers

“Comes from food network. My daughter and I made these all summer long while our gardens were overflowing with bell peppers and sweet bannana peppers. Recipe lists, either bell peppers or sweet banana peppers, not both, example; 4 med. bell peppers or 8 large banana peppers. They freeze well too. If you don't want to bother with Emeril's Essence, you can substitute a seasoned salt of choice (that's what we do.) Make sure to add the water when you cook the peppers this keeps them from drying out, also.... others have suggested adding some butter and more cheese on top of the peppers.”
