Dancer I took a few liberties to use up what I had in the fridge - I didn't use any rice (I wanted to use up some left over potatoes on the side), no soy used some hot sauce, no egg either. I didn't place the pepper in boiling water first . I mixed and cooked the stuffing adding 3 large mushrooms & a stalk of celery, used ground chicken, stuffed the peppers, poured in about 1/2 cup of water to the bottome of the baking dish, covered the peppers with foil and baked in a 375 oven for 35 minutes. The peppers still had a crunch, they were hot right through & the stuffing was not dry . We loved them! I didn't feel that the recipe was so different that it constituted posting a new recipe. Thanks Dancer you are always an inspiration to me
