1 lb ground meat
3 large red sweet peppers
6 large dried black prunes, pitted
1 tbsp tomato sauce or salsa
6 cheese slices
Chop the prunes.

Mix the ground meat, chopped prunes, tomato sauce, and salt.

Stir-fry the mix on low-medium heating for about 20-25 minutes, or until the meat is ready (turns gray colored).

Cut the peppers in halves lengthwise, remove the stalk and seeds.

Pre-heat an oven to 370-390 F.

Stuff each half of a pepper with the prepared meat.

Cover with cheese slices.

Sprinkle a baking sheet with 1 tbsp vegetable oil.

Place them on the baking sheet, and bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese melts.

Serve hot with a rye bread.
