Stuffed Peppers

1 pound lean ground beef
2/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-3/4 cups chopped seeded tomatoes, divided
4 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup water
4 medium green peppers
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions, chopped
4 grape tomatoes, halved, optional

In a large nonstick skillet, cook the beef, red pepper, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in 1/2 cup tomatoes, chili powder, cornstarch, cumin, oregano and cayenne. Gradually stir in water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Cut green peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds. In a large kettle, cook peppers in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture into each pepper half.

Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender and filling is heated through. Top with the remaining tomatoes. Garnish with sour cream, cheese, green onions and grape tomatoes if desired. Makes 4 servings.
