"FOR SOME extra flavor, I like to add bouillon to the dish when the pepper are baking. It also steams them a little. If I'm making chicken or turkey with the peppers, I use chicken bouillon; if I'm making beef, then I use beef bouillon."

"Needs a little more tomato sauce and some mozzarella cheese to top it off, but it was a great recipe for my first attempt at stuffed peppers!"
