I'm making bell peppers stuffed with ground turkey and rice & I haven't made them in a REALLY long time so I can't remember how long I usually bake them. Most of the recipes I see include boiling the peppers before stuffing them. I don't really like that because I don't like my peppers to be mushy when they're done. So if you stuff the peppers raw, what temp would you bake at & for how long?

I usually do parboil my peppers before I stuff them-- two or three minutes in rapidly boiling water-- because I like the peppers to be tender. I don't think that would affect cooking time, though-- the time in the oven is more about making sure the filling is hot all the way through. (And if the filling contains meat that isn't precooked, you'll of course be doubly sure it's really hot.)
