Do you have to pre-cook your peppers?
No, you do not have to pre-cook or boil your peppers before you fill and bake them. I like my stuffed peppers to be more crunchy and crispy, so I do not pre-cook them or bake for a long time. I love that crunch the fresh bell peppers still have with only baking for around 20 minutes.
Some people do what their stuffed peppers to be softer and not as crisp, so I would recommend pre-cooking them by boiling. You would want to fill a pot with water and fill your peppers with water as will. Cut the top off, and fill with water, this will help keep them submerged in the boiling process. Bring your peppers to a boil, and then reduce heat to medium and allow the peppers to simmer for about 3-5 minutes. Any time longer will really make them soft. Once they are boiled, put in an ice bath to cool rapidly for the remaining process. Slice them, stuff them, then bake them as before. This will result in a softer pepper once done.
I slice mine in half and fill because I find it easier to eat. You can even skip the fork and pick it up and eat it just like you would a sandwich.
