In a skillet, cook the beef and onions over medium heat until lightly browned.  Drain off grease and add the tomato sauce, Smokey Red Sensation sauce, corn, chili powder, oregano, cumin, cayenne, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, beans, salt, pepper & water.  Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Slice the top off the peppers and remove the seeds and white membranes with a spoon.  Place peppers upright in a baking dish.  Spoon the beef mixture into each pepper.  Top each stuffed pepper with cheese.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes until the peppers are tender and the cheese is golden brown.
