Simple Suppers- Unstuffed Peppers

Who has time to pre-boil, stuff and then bake peppers?  Ain't nobody got time for that (Overused?  Probably.  Don't care)!
Unstuffed Peppers
1 Tbsp. oil
1 onion, chopped
3-4 bell peppers, chopped (I used red, green and yellow)
1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp. garlic powder
1-1/2 c. rice
1-28 oz. can tomato sauce
1-14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1/2 c. water
salt and pepper

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add onion and peppers, sprinkle with some salt and pepper, and cook until they begin to soften (3-5 minutes).
Add ground beef and cook, breaking up with a spatula, until no longer pink.  Stir in garlic powder.
Add rice, sauce, tomatoes and water.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes, until rice is tender.
Check seasonings and serve!

*I serve this topped with shredded cheese!*
