    1      pound         lean ground beef
    1      can           {14 1/2 oz.}  diced tomatoes -- partially drained
    2      cups          uncooked instant or boil-in-bag rice
      1/4  teaspoon      paprika
      1/4  teaspoon      celery salt
      1/2  teaspoon      Worcestershire sauce
    4      large         green bell peppers
 
 * Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 * Lightly coat a 9 x 9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray, or use an
 uncoated, non-stick metal baking dish.
 * In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, diced tomatoes, rice, paprika,
 celery salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix with a large spoon until well
 blended; set aside.
 * Cut peppers from top to bottom, into 4 or 5 large strips. Place half of the
 peppers on the bottom of the baking dish. Spoon half of the meat mixture,
 spreading evenly, over peppers. Repeat with remaining peppers and meat
 mixture.
 * Cover and bake for 45 minutes.
