  4. crumble in the sausage and ground beef and add the dried seasonings and the hot sauce if desired to the meat before its entirely cooked.

  8. Pull the bell peppers out of the water with tongs and arrange in a large glass baking dish. fill each bell pepper with the meat mixture( don't be shy, stuff'em good!) and bake in your preheated oven for 20 minutes
