This was very tasty! The only thing I didn't like was how my peppers' skin hardened - I'm not sure why this happened. I used anaheim peppers from our garden and followed the recipe, except I used vegan Daiya cheddar, powdered egg substitute, and plain soymilk. My boyfriend loved it but I couldn't get over the hard pepper skin pieces that kept getting stuck in my teeth...

  3. Invert peppers on paper towels to drain well.
  4. Place the peppers in a well-greased 2-quart square baking dish.
