Next wash six peppers and cut out a jack-o’-lantern face using a sharp paring knife. Next make sure to slice off the top and remove seeds and the core. Next stuff the peppers and place onto baking sheet. Make sure the peppers aren’t touching each other. Bake in the oven until the peppers are tender, which should be about an hour.
