How Long To Cook Stuffed Peppers?

​Cook time of the peppers is definitely a personal preference. Do you want slight bite to your pepper or do you want it softer and a little charred. We personally prefer a slight bite so 20 minutes in the oven is the perfect amount of cook time.

If you want a softer, more charred pepper you can cook them in the oven under broil for a couple minutes before stuffing them! The peppers will then cook further in the oven once stuffed and carry less bite.
