This recipe is one I've made many times for my children. It was requested that I add it to my cook book as it is a favorite. Shane is my most favorite child to cook for, sorry kids :) He loves EVERYTHING and if he doesn't, he doesn't let me know! He is always so grateful when I make him something, he usually says, thank you Mom, that was good! He never complains and always wants more. Don't get me wrong, I love to cook for all 7 of my children, they know that, but Shane, I never have to worry, will he like this? With him its, did I make enough? I LOVE that, I'm a cook!
1Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the tops off the peppers, and remove the seeds. Cook peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes; drain. Sprinkle salt inside each pepper, and set aside.
2In a large skillet, saute beef and onions for 5-7 minutes, or until beef is browned. Drain off excess fat, and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomatoes, rice, 1/2 cup water and Worcestershire sauce. Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until rice is tender. Remove from heat, and stir in 1 cup of the cheese.
3Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. (175 degrees C). Stuff each pepper with the beef and rice mixture, and place peppers open side up in a baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine tomato soup with just enough water to make the soup a gravy consistency. Pour over the peppers. Sprinkle tops with the rest of cheese.
4Bake covered for 25 to 35 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
