When cooking with foil, make sure that the seams and folds you make are as airtight as possible so as to retain heat. This allows the food inside to cook faster in the same way a pressure cooker operates.
Stuffed Green Peppers
1/2 pound of hamburger
Salt and pepper
1/3 of cup of diced onion
4 green peppers
shredded cheese, optional
Scrape out the green peppers and wash thoroughly. Mix together the other ingredients and add salt and pepper (to taste). Stuff the mixture into the peppers and wrap each pepper in foil — again remembering to make good seals on the seams of the foil, where you have folded. Place the peppers on a bed of hot coals, and cook on each side for 12-15 minutes.Â open, top with cheese, if using, and close quickly and let sit a minute or two to melt cheese.
Note that you can change the filling, but if you use ground turkey, it might dry out before the peppers are tender.Â You can add cooked rice or beans, if available, to make more filling to serve a larger crowd.
