Its a hard job getting kids, why kids – sometimes, even grownups to eat their vegetables.
But transform them into something special, something cheesy and there might be none left for you.
So is the case with these peppers. Ask my son to eat peppers, and he says disgusting- but say Stuffed Cheese Peppers and he not only eats them, but assists in stufing them as well.
For years now, these peppers have been one of our most favourites appetizers.
Do make them at your parties. I promise they will be eyecatchingly delicious!
