Sprinkle little salt and pepper to give some taste to the capsicum so that they are not bwland to taste.
Stuff the potato filling into the capsicum and arrange them vertically on the baking sheet sprinkle some cheese on top.
Apply half teaspoon of oil on each stuffed bell pepper.
I covered the top of the pepper with the stem part applying a little oil to avoid burning of cheese and also for better presentation. If you can exclude this step.
Bake them in the oven for about 30 minutes or until you notice the shell of the bell pepper has started shrinking and the top has browned.
The Baked Stuffed Capsicum is now ready to be served.
