Simmer them over a medium high heat in salted water until they are tender and fall off a fork.

6

Whip the potatoes using an egg beater along with 1 cup of whole milk, 1/4 of a stick of unsalted butter and salt. I suggest you overly salt them for this recipe.

7

Place the peppers in a baking dish so they all stand up and stuff them.
