Brown ground beef, onion, garlic, and chili powder; add salt, pepper and tomato soup; simmer 5 minutes. Add cheese and rice, set aside. Cook cleaned peppers in boiling salted water not more than 3 minutes. Drain and cool, and then stuff with cooled mixture. Place peppers in oven proof pan and cover with foil.
