Please leave a comment for Stuffed Green Peppers.. did it feed six? Did you like it? Did you love it?

3 large green sweet peppers
1 pound ground beef (I used sausage for more flavor)
1 small onion, chopped
3 (7 1/2 oz) cans chopped tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup long grain rice, uncooked (I just used regular rice)
3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano, crushed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Halve peppers, lengthwise, removing stem ends, seeds, and membranes. Immerse peppers into boiling water for 3 minutes. Invert and dry on paper towels.

Cook meat and onions in a skillet until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in undrained tomatoes, water, uncooked rice, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15-18 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in 3/4 cup cheese.

Fill peppers with meat mixture. Place in a baking dish along with any remaining meat mixture. Bake at 375 dgrees for 15 minutes or until heated through. sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Let stand for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

My kids loved the stuffing, and the teenagers even ate the peppers! My husband and I loved it and are so thankful for the recipe!
