  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cut a circle around the top of the pepper and remove it (making a lid).

  5. While peppers are boiling, brown the ground beef (or turkey) until cooked through.
  6. Add in onion and cook until softened.
  7. Drain and return to the skillet.
  8. Mix in 1/4 - 1/3 cup of cheese.
  9. Add the rice, salt, garlic salt and 1 cup of tomato sauce to the beef. Cook until all is hot.
