Spoon about 3/4 cup meat mixture into each pepper; place in 2 full-size hotel pans (or in 1 half-size hotel pan for trial recipe).
MASHED Potatoes: Cook potatoes in boiling salted water 18 min. or until tender; drain. Transfer to bowl of mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Add remaining ingredients; beat until well blended. Spoon or pipe heaping 1/3 cup over meat mixture in each pepper.
SAUCE: MIX all ingredients until well blended; pour around peppers in pans.
BAKE in 300ºF-convection oven 50 min. or until peppers are tender, rotating pans and covering if necessary to prevent overbrowning.
