"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."

MY HUSBAND likes stuffed peppers, but my old recipe made too much. I devised this recipe to accommodate just the two of us. It helps to use a small-size casserole so the peppers won't tip over while baking. For color, I serve steamed carrots with the peppers, rounding out the meal perfectly. —Elaine Carpenter Horseshoe Bay, Texas
