Omigoodness, the ultimate comfort food. We made these almost a month ago for some friends that had a baby and they were a huge hit. I mean huge. No wonder, they were ooey, gooey, and so yummy. In fact, my mouth is watering just a little bit. Our friend Jon, is one of the best people to make a meal for because he loves everything and thinks everything is wonderful. It's nice to have an unconditional eater around :)

1/2 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
