Author Notes: My garden was full of these wonderful little peppers...some turning bright orange. These little stuffed peppers are real palate awakening wonders! If the peppers are small (bitesize) use a whole pepper. If they are larger, then before stuffing cut the pepper in half and stuff as directed. dymnyno
