Looks like it did 50 or so years ago! The only difference was that Mom used green bell peppers.
As an interesting with this receipie, without the grated chesse Mom would make a dish called Spanish Rice ...the pepper was chopped up! This is what I recall as the older brother of pegasusledgend!! Right on Sis!

Wow this looks good..do you think i could use goat cheese...i have some green bell peppers and left over goat cheese that i need to get rid of...I wonder if it will work?

Not sure about the salt content in goat cheese sometimes it isnt a good combination when baked.
If your going to just put it on top after baking for garnish it should be fine, just wouldnt mix with the ingredients all together...hope that helps.
