4. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, cut a small slit in one side. Using a very small spoon, remove seeds and veins. With a pastry bag or a spoon, fill each pepper with some of the cheese filling.

5. Grill for 5 to 10 minutes more or until cheese is heated through.  Karoline Boehm Goodnick
