Note: Microwave cooking time has been reduced from 5 to 6 minutes to reflect reader feedback. However, you should start checking doneness after 3 to 4 minutes. Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the peppers and the microwave wattage. The peppers will appear slightly “shriveled”. This is normal as you will stuff the peppers with cooked ingredients.
