Cut peppers in half lengthwise, remove core and seeds, wash and drain.  In a skillet add butter.  Sauté onions and celery.  When the onions are translucent add the meat and dry seasonings.  Pour off the fat add the can of tomatoes and rice mix thoroughly.  Fill peppers with the meat mixture.  Place peppers in a shallow dish add water to dish.
