Ingredients

Cut tops off peppers and remove seeds. In a large kettle, cook peppers in boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water; invert on paper towels.

Place in a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25 minutes. Top with remaining soup and cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
