I am going to make stuffed red peppers tonight. Green peppers bother me, so I purchased red. I'm doing the standard rice and chopped meat sort of stuffing, with tomato sauce. Kind of like my mom used to do, but I'll season them up more. I was planning on cooking them on the stovetop, but in just checking other recipes, they all call for putting them in the oven. What does everyone else do, and does anyone blanch the peppers before stuffing them? I haven't made them before, but we were just talking about stuffed peppers recently, so I thought I'd give them a try for old time's sake. Thanks.
