Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown beef with onion and then add seasoning. Turn up heat high and stir constantly until water evaporates. Turn down heat to low. Add tomato sauce and black beans and stir well. Cut off the tops of the peppers and pull out the guts. Fill peppers with beef mixture and put in a casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
