    Sweet peppers (bell), 2 medium
    Ground beef, lean, 10 oz
    Onions, raw, 0.5 large
    Garlic, 3 clove, minced
    Favorite seasonings
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, 0.5 cup, chopped
    Mushrooms, fresh, 0.5 cup, finely chopped
    Mozzarella shredded Part Skim cheese, 0.5 cup (160 cals worth)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tops off the peppers. Clean out the insides and seeds.Boil them for a minute or two, then immediately douse them in ice water. (Blanch them)

In a hot skillet, sauté the meat and add any seasonings you'd like (use beef and taco seasoning! or ground chicken and ranch!). Stir. Drain the fat.

Add the tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted and remove from heat. Set aside.

Fill the peppers with filling. Pour water into baking dish until the bottom is covered. Tightly place the filled peppers into the baking dish. Cover each with a foil "cap" and bake for 35 minutes. After 35 minutes, uncover, add a little cheese, and broil to give it a nice finished top if you'd like.
