Slice one side of the peppers lengthwise all the way to the bottom. Remove the seeds by gently scraping using a small spoon or a butter knife. Set aside.
Slice the cheddar cheese into long pieces. Stuff individual slices of cheese into each pepper. Sccop the cooked meat mixture and stuff into the chili peppers. Make sure that there is enough meat.
Wrap the stuffed peppers in lumpia wrapper.
