Stuffed Green Peppers

4 large green peppers
3/4 lb ground beef (ground chicken or turkey can be subst.)
1 medium onion, chopped
14 1/2 oz can of diced tomatoes with juice
8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup white rice
1/2 cup water
2 T Worsteshire sauce
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
8 slices american cheese (kraft singles) for topping *(if you want to cut
down on the cheese, you can use half the cheddar cheese in the stuffing and
reserve half for sprinkling on top instead of the singles)
salt, pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 F

Slice peppers in half lengthwise, remove stems carefully and inner membrane
and seeds. Blanch peppers for 3 minutes in boiling water, immediately
immerse in cold water when done (to stop cooking) then salt the inside of the
peppers and drain on paper towels.

Then saute ground beef and onion in a large frying pan until beef is browned
and onion is soft. add tomatoes and tomato sauce, water, Worsteshire sauce,
rice, and salt and pepper (to taste). cover and cook for 15 minutes (until
rice is tender and most of the moisture is absorbed). after cooking, add
cheddar cheese and stir till melted through. fill each pepper half with the
mixture and place in a baking dish. top each half with cheese slice (or
reserved grated cheese) and bake for 15 minutes. enjoy!
