Easily you could use ground turkey or pork instead of beef and whatever seasonings and cheese your family likes.
I like the peppers better if I par boil or blanch them. Just bring a large kettle of water to a rolling boil and drop the peppers that you have cut the core out of, seeded, and removed the ribs or veins from into the rolling water and leave 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon or spider into a prepared bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and cool. The peppers are much more tender and milder prepared this way.
Ingredients for stuffed peppers:
4-6 bell peppers, any color cleaned (you may blanch or not, works fine both ways)
1 pound ground meat of you choice, cooked, drained, and seasoned with salt and pepper
4 C. cooled cooked rice or macaroni of your choosing
2 C. cubed or shredded cheese of your choosing
3 C. crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato soup, spaghetti or taco sauce, your choice
salt, pepper, additional seasoning of your liking to taste
