  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup lowest-carb tomato sauce you can find
  • olive oil or bacon drippings
  • 1 packet artificial sweetener

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed, or equivalent in garlic powder

  • While the filling is cooking, trim the tops off the peppers and remove the
  • seeds and any gunk inside.
  • Fill the peppers with the mixture.
  • Mix the remaining tomato sauce with the artificial sweetener, vinegar, and if
  • you wish, some allspice or herbs or creole seasoning.
  • Stuff the peppers with the filling.
  • Put them into the baking dish and spoon the sauce over the tops.
