Bridget's favorite peppers

On Tuesday night I made a batch of stuffed bell peppers. We had a bunch left over from our CSA last week, and they weren't long for this world. It is a recipe my mom has made forever, particularly for my sister Bridget (see the recipe below). The recipe involves cheese whiz (believe me it tastes amazing in this recipe), but I couldn't find it at the Whole Foods near my house. Therefore I substituted a bag of shredded Mexican blend cheese (because I knew it would melt well). It definitely wasn't the same! Partially because there was so little salt with the cheese whiz missing. Next time I am going to make an effort to find cheese whiz or maybe even velveeta cheese. I don't usually use processed cheese, but in this recipe it is necessary! It even looks like the recipe was developed to use cheese whiz in the 1920s (see note below).
