Cut the top off peppers, remove stems. You can finely chop the tops if you prefer or discard.
Scoop the seeds out of the pepper.
Place peppers(right side up) in a baking dish, just large enough to hold them.
Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet at medium high heat.
Add your protein(beef/ turkey).
Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder.
Cook for 8-10 minutes until the meat begins to brown.
Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to get rid of the fat.

Next add the zucchini and cook for another minute.
Next add the tomatoes and season with salt and a pinch of red pepper flakes, next stir back in the beef and rice.
Finally fill the peppers with mixture and top each with cheese.
