Stuffed Peppers

Challenge completed successfully! This is my 3rd and final recipe with ground beef and onion for the week.
Stuffed Peppers
1 1/4 pounds ground beef (I also added ground sausage b/c that is how I roll)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
6 red bell peppers (I used green)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the ground beef, and cook until brown and crumbly. Pour off excess grease, then stir in garlic, onion, and tomatoes. Cook and stir until the onions soften just a bit, about 3 minutes. Stir the cheese into the mixture, and set aside.
Cut the tops off of the peppers, and remove the veins and seeds. Fill each pepper with the ground beef mixture and pour in some of the chicken broth. Place into the cups of a muffin tin, and replace the tops. Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes.

*I served this with Green Chili Cornbread - with a twist. I cheated. I used my favorite dry cornbread mix then just added green chilis, cheddar cheese and creamed corn. Yum.
