    1/2 cup chopped onion
    2 cloves garlic minced
    salt and pepper (to taste)
    1/2 cup Del Monte Diced Tomatoes, no salt added

    2 medium size green or red bell peppers
    4 oz grated cheddar or colby low fat

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Cook rice according to package directions.

3. Mix rice and ground beef mixture in large bowl.

4. Blanch green/red bell peppers for 5 minutes, remove from water, drain, dry, cut in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and white veins completely. Place in baking pan (square, rectangle, glass or metal, whatever fits for you)

5. Fill peppers with meat/rice mixture. Top each one with grated cheese. (you can top with tomato sauce also if prefered.)

6. Place in oven and bake for approx. 45 minutes or until cheese melts/browns and peppers are tender.

Serves 4

Note: If you have too much meat/rice mixture (size of peppers can leave you with extra) serve on the side or save for a later dish the next day. This is good in hollowed out tomatoes also.
