Heat pepper, onion, and garlic in oil. Cover and cook 5 minutes on low.
Add all remaining ingredients, besides parsley and cheddar. Bring to a boil. Stir, and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
To serve, garnish with shredded cheddar and parsley (optional). Crusty buttered bread is a delicious addition, as well.
