Mini Stuffed Peppers

Picture is not so pretty, but these little stuffed peppers are very tasty
A dish here in Bulgaria which we have often with our Bulgarian family, but only when in season, as they are one of the main crops we grow here in the villages. Typically a Bulgarian version will be filled with rice but these are filled with mince. The small peppers when baked like this are lovely & sweet.
