Remove the seeds and core from the capsicum. Slice each capsicum from top to bottom, into 6 sections (these should be boat shaped). Set aside.
Prepare the filling ahead of time. Cook the finely chopped onion gently, until it is softened. Add the mince, breaking it up as it cooks. Add all the spices, and the salsa to the mince.
Get the Joey Scouts to spoon the meat mixture into the capsicum boats, and top with cheese. Bake on a tray for about 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and capsicum is hot.

Makes 18.
