  • To partially cook peppers for stuffing, cut in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves on a large microproof platter, cut side down. Cover with waxed paper or vented plastic wrap. Microwave 8 halves 5 minutes on high. Rotate plate once during cooking.
  • Combine beef and onion in microwaveable colander over a bowl. Microwave on high 4 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Stir half way through cooking to break up meat. Discard drippings. Transfer meat to a covered microwave dish. Stir in salt, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire Sauce, chili powder and tomato sauce. Microwave on high 2 minutes or until mixture boils. Stir in rice, cover and microwave 2 minutes. Let stand 5 - 10 minutes, covered or until rice softens and absorbs liquid. Stir in cheese.
  • Fill pre-cooked pepper halves, molding ingredients if necessary. Place in a circle on plate or in dish.
  • Microwave on high 6 minutes, rotating dish once: let stand covered.


Substitute ground turkey or chicken for the beef. Add more chili powder for stronger flavour and you can add more cheese as well.
