What other stuffings I can Put in these Peppers?

I have used Shrimp here as I wanted to feed my family vegetable along with seafood as we prefer seafood over anything else in this world, but you can use Cottage Cheese/Paneer, Rice with beans /lentils ,Spicy Corn stuffing or anything else that you like. Next  I would be trying Chicken too.
