Capsicum on a baking tray filled with taco filling and topped with grated cheese.
++ Hot pepper contains 90% water
This is the main reason we bake half of the peppers for 10 minutes. You would probably be able to pour the water from the middle of the pepper that would otherwise have gone into the taco filling.
It also allows you to cook ground beef while the peppers are cooking, which saves time.
