Preparation Ideas: Delicious stuffed. Remove tops off 4 peppers and remove seeds and membranes and place in baking pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the insides of the pepper for added flavor. Preheat oven to 375 F. Precook enough white or brown rice to make 1 cup. Brown 1/2 pound of ground beef or chicken with chopped onion until meat is no longer pink. Add enough tomato sauce to make a thick sauce and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder if desired or other preferred seasonings. Remove from heat and stir in cooked rice. Stuff peppers with filling. Sprinkle tops with cheese if desired. Place peppers in baking pan. Add water to baking pan until bottom is covered. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil (shiny side up). To prevent foil from sticking to peppers, lightly spray dull side of foil with cooking spray. Bake until peppers are soft, but not mushy (approximately 1 hour). Add additional water to baking pan if needed to keep peppers from burning.
