   NOTE: You may use green peppers, but I like the way red and yellow
   ones look and they're slightly sweeter. Choose peppers that will
   stand without tipping over. -- Lee Bailey
   
   Preheat the oven to 350øF.
   
   Slice off the stems of the peppers, and remove the seeds and
   membranes. Put the peppers in a pot of boiling water and boil for
   about 5 minutes, to soften. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, in a
   medium skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Saut‚ the minced
   onion and celery until wilted, about 5 minutes. Scrape into a bowl
   and add the corn and tomatoes. Toss, then toss again with the salt
   and black pepper. Toss in the bread crumbs and then the eggs. Stuff
   the peppers, mounding the tops.
   
   Place in a baking pan containing about 1/2 of hot water. Top with the
   shredded cheese and cover with aluminum foil (oil the underside).
   Bake for about 1 hour, uncovering for the last 10 minutes.
