  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes.

Since the other review said it was bland I added a few things. I added some pepper, italian seasoning, and a sprinkle of italian seasoned bread crumbs (I had some I wanted to use up) to the meat. I also topped it with grated parmesan cheese. Oh, and I used green bell peppers. It turned out really great! I served it with bread and butter with a bit of garlic salt sprinkled on it. It went really good with it. It was a hit with my Husband, I will make this again for sure!

Needs more flavor. I will adjust the recipe next time. It wasn't bad, just lacking in flavor.

We tried these the other night! They were GREAT! I made them with these changes: I used fresh roma tomatoes instead of canned, added some chopped baby bella mushrooms, italian seasoning, a little extra garlic, pepper, and I used parmesan instead of cheddar. I was out of chicken broth so I used beef instead. Super Tastey! My husband and I both really enjoyed them. I will use this recipe again!

We liked this very much. It was definitely easy to make and was on the table quite quickly. I followed some other reviewers' advice and added some salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.

Great filling, but need to cook longer as peppers were a little underdone for our taste.

These really are easy! My family really liked them, but I found a little more flavor was needed. I added more herbs and Worcestershire sauce. I "overstuffed" pepper HALVES which I softened briefly in the microwave. The chicken broth isn't really necessary, it just adds an additional savory element. These freeze extremely well, so I made up a few lunch containers that my husband can just "grab and go!" Thanks for the recipe!
