    Yum Yum.

    It looks like you’ve tried both blanching the peppers and steaming in the oven.
    What is your perfered method here in 2019 for cooking the peppers?
    Last time I made Philly Cheese steak bell peppers my peppers weren’t soft enough come dinner time. whomp whomp

    • Blanching will for sure soften the peppers faster! I like mine on the crisper side when stuffing them with taco toppings and ingredients but then softer when stuffed with cheese/veggies/rice so I’ll usually bounce back between the two methods. If you’re cooking the filling stovetop and only need it to heat through, I’d for sure blanch then stuff then bake to cut down on cook time! xoxo
