2 large green or red peppers,
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup onion, chopped, 1 1/4 ounces
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup tomato, chopped, about 2 ounces
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
2 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, for topping
In a large pot, bring about half a potful of water to a boil. Add the peppers
and boil for 3 minutes; drain. In the same pot, brown the hamburger,
onion and garlic. Drain the fat and stir in the tomatoes and seasonings.
Cook until the tomatoes are hot; remove from the heat and stir in the 4
ounces of cheese. Put the pepper halves in a greased 8x8" baking pan
and fill with the meat mixture. Sprinkle the extra cheese on top, if using.
Bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes.
