Stuffed peppers are good. I have a similar recipe Snoopy, but mine uses diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. It's not really a recipe, but Taco Salad is good.
1 pound lean ground beef 1 cup cooked brown rice 6 green bell peppers - blanch for 3 minutes in a pot of boiling water, then let cool 1 small onion chopped 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce 1 or 2 cloves of garlic chopped 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or a combination of oregano, parsley and basil.
Turn oven to 350 degrees
In a skillet over medium heat, cook the beef and onions until beef is evenly browned.
Remove and discard the tops, seeds, and membranes of the bell peppers and blanch by boiling for 3 minutes in a pot of water.
Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward. (Slice the bottoms of the peppers if necessary so that they will stand upright.)
In a bowl, mix the browned beef and onion mixture, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, garlic and seasonings.
Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper.
Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the stuffed peppers.
Cover tightly with foil and bake 1 hour.

I hate to do this to you . . . but I am going to suggest that you try these instead of hamburgers. They are awesome . . . and my family (non-vegetarians) love them!!
Spicy Black Bean Burgers
Ingredients • 2 cans black beans, drained and well rinsed; divided • 1 small onion, cut into chunks • 1/2 green pepper, cut into chunks • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled • 1 egg • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Chili powder • 1 tsp Sriracha or other hot sauce • 3/4 c. breadcrumbs (I used panko) Directions 1. In a bowl, place 1/2 of the beans (1 can), garlic, and the vegetable chunks. 2. Using an immersion blender, blend well until no chunks remain. 3. Add the rest of the beans and blend briefly, so that some whole beans remain. 4. Add the egg, chili powder, and hot sauce. Stir well. 5. Add the bread crumbs and combine until the mixture is sticky. 6. Form into 4 patties and either bake, 10 minutes per side in a 400* oven, grill, or pan-fry until hot all the way through and the outside is crunchy.
