    Annie H's Note:

    A little twist on stuffed peppers. I like a little heat to tingle my mouth and this worked pretty well for me. Serve with steamed veggies, or a soup. This is a knockoff of Dana's recipe.

      I really enjoyed the flavour of these peppers and thought boiling them in water and hot sauce was a neat way to "infuse" heat into the peppers without it being overwhelming. I did have some problems with the rice not being cooked long after the recommended baking time but I talked this over with Annie and realised that the peppers needed to be covered. She has since added that to the directions and I think that would resolve the problem next time. Loved the tomatoes down the sides of the peppers too. It's like a little surprise when you tuck into them!
