  1. Cut the top rings off and seed each pepper, creating deep cups. Coarsely dice the pepper rings. Set aside separately.
  2. Mix together the filling ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a pan large enough to hold the peppers, mix together the sauce ingredients. Stir in the reserved diced pepper rings.
  4. Lightly salt the insides of each pepper cup.
  5. Stuff each cup with filling, standing each filled pepper on top of the sauce in the pan.
  6. Carefully baste the sauce over the peppers.
  7. Cover and bake 375°F for 45 minutes. Check it a couple of times to be sure the sauce doesn't cook down too much. Add a little water if necessary.

  9. Remove pan cover and continue baking about 20 minutes or 'til the sauce thickens and the cheese melts.
