Stuffed Green Bell Peppers

Well it didn't take long for us to become over run with fresh Green Bell Peppers from the garden so now is the perfect time to make stuffed peppers.  Peppers are so easy to grow even if you don't have a garden, you can grow them in your flower bed or just in a flower pot on the patio.
1 Pound Ground beef
Green Peppers
1/2 cup uncooked Rice
1/4 cup Onion chopped
1 teaspoon Garlic
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons of oil
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 (8ounce) can of tomato sauce
1 can chopped tomatoes (or you can use fresh tomatoes)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place rice and 1 cup of water in saucepan, and bring to a boil, reduce heat cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  In a skillet heat oil and add in onion, celery and garlic, sauté until tender. 
 Add raw ground beef to skillet and cook until evenly browned.  Once the beef is browned transfer into a bowl.
Add the cooked rice, can of tomato sauce, chopped tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and 3/4 cup shredded cheese.  Mix together.   Wash peppers, cut tops off and remove the ribs inside the pepper.  Place peppers in oven proof dish.  Fill peppers with beef mixture and top with more shredded cheese.  Bake for 45 minutes.
