This is fabulous! There are lots of leftovers if you are only cooking for two, but they reheat very well. Pick small peppers or the cups will be too big and the edges will burn.

What a great idea, Dicooks! I love quiche of all kinds but never envisioned cooking them in red pepper shells. The variations on this recipe are virtually endless! Thank you! ~Chef 289860.
