Stuffed Green Peppers


6 large green peppers or 8 medium, tops removed, seeded (save the tops to add to stuffing)
1 pound lean ground beef (you could use ground turkey, too)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 (4 ounce) can green chilies, drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drain and save the juice
1/2 cup minute rice (can use regular rice but need to cook it first if you do)
1 (4 ounce) can tomato sauce, Optional 
Cheese for tops of peppers, about 1/2 cup shredded (cheddar, or whatever you like)


In a large pot of boiling water, after you have removed the seeds and stems, boil the peppers for five minutes to soften them up.  Remove from water and drain on paper towels.  Brown the hamburger, onion, chopped pepper tops and drain if needed.  Add the oregano, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt, garlic, basil, green chilies, drained diced tomatoes and minute rice.  Simmer until rice is tender or about 5 minutes. Fill your peppers with the hamburger mixture. (If you are using the tomato sauce pour it over the filled peppers. Pour the drained tomato juice that you saved from the diced tomatoes into the bottom of your casserole dish.  Bake peppers in preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Remove and add shredded cheese to top of each pepper.  Return to oven for five more minutes until cheese melts. This recipe makes 6 to 8 stuffed peppers. Cut in half if only making four.
