Step 1

Put the cup of water into the inner liner of the pressure cooker. Also place the trivet in the pot for the peppers to sit on.

Step 2

Rinse the peppers and cut the tops off. Deseed and remove the membrane.

Step 3

Add the rice to the mixing bowl.

Step 4

Add the ground turkey or beef (raw) and all other ingredients (except for half of the tomato sauce and half the cheese) to the mixing bowl. Mix to combine thoroughly with the rice.

Step 5

Fill each pepper with enough of the meat mixture to come a little bit above the top of the pepper. Don't pack them too tightly or they won't cook evenly.
