Yum, it's been a while since we did anything with peppers and those look great - and I would tear those burgers up. Fresh ground meat is the way to go!
As HankB said, shredded cheese does have starch, usually potato starch to keep it from sticking. We stopped getting pre-shredded cheese years ago because of that, it doesn't melt as easily as pure cheese.

As an aside, did you look at the "ingredients" for the grated cheese? I learned recently that the producers put starch and stuff on them. I suppose that's necessary to keep it from turning into a sticky mess, but it has put me off buying grated cheese. I've been grating my own. Of course I use cream cheese in my poppers and that's really hard to grate.
