Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut out a circle on the top of the peppers to take out the stems & seeds.
Fill up a large pot halfway with water and boil. Once boiling, cook the peppers for 5 minutes, making sure to cook the pepper evenly on all sides.
While boiling, cook the ground beef or turkey in a large skillet. Drain the fat, then mix in the taco seasoning along with 2/3 cup of water.
Add the taco meat, one cup of prepared rice, 1/2 cup of taco cheese, minced garlic, and a can of drained diced tomatoes to a large mixing bowl.
Add hot sauce to your liking. Make it as spicy as you want.
Place the peppers in a small glass casserole dish, cut side facing up.
Divide up the stuffing into four and STUFF. Be generous. Let them overflow.
Top the peppers with the other 1/2 cup of cheese sprinkled on the tops.
Bake for 25 minutes.
