4 bell peppers
5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 cup of cooked rice
1 cup chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned

Cut top off peppers 1 inch from the stem end, and remove seeds.

Preheat oven to 180C.

Heat 4 tbsp of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook a minute more.

Remove skillet from heat, add meat, rice, tomatoes, and oregano, and season generously with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil inside the peppers. Arrange the cut side of the peppers up in a baking dish, then stuff peppers with filling.

Combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce in a small bowl, then spoon over filling.

Add 1/4 cup of water to the baking dish. Place in oven and bake for 40-50 minutes.
