Cut off the tops of the peppers and use a spoon to gently scrape out the ribs and seeds.
Salvage all the pepper flesh from around the stem and chop it, along with the onions and garlic.
Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil and blanch the peppers for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon, or tongs and turn upside down on paper toweling to drain and cool.
6Using a spoon, fill the peppers fully, pressing down and mounding the top slightly. Place in a casserole dish-extra stuffing can also be placed in one end of the dish.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Top each with one slice of american cheese, return to oven for 10-15 minutes until melted and edges begin to brown....you see here I baked mine a little too long...and used white american cheese.
