Boil or Don’t Boil Pepper Before Stuffing

While boiling the bell peppers before stuffing them is an option to achieve a very tender texture and reduce baking time, it is not necessary. By baking the peppers longer in the oven, you can achieve the desired tenderness without the extra step of boiling. This allows the flavors to meld together during the baking process.
