Make-Ahead Stuffed Pepper Shells

Stuffed peppers are my specialty for fall potlucks. So, in the summer, when peppers are abundant, I freeze them. To prepare the peppers for freezing, wash well; remove seeds and stem. Blanch for 3 minutes; drain well and freeze on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Once frozen, place them in plastic freezer bags and enjoy them all fall and winter long. —Ruth Johnson, Albuquerque, New Mexico
