Usage Tips 

  • Thick-fleshed peppers are best suited for stuffing.
  • For a mixture with low-fat cottage cheese, choose high-fat sour cream. If you do not find sour cream, take heavy cream.
  • Pepper pulp pairs very well with milk fat, and the bacon adds flavor and barely penetrates the cheese mince.
