What type of hosta is this?

Hi, I believe this plant is a hosta, but what variation is it? It has a yellow/green border around a green center. The leaves resemble ovals and they are kind of thick. Also, the stems have a red tint to them. Thank you!

can't recall the name of this relatively common house plant but its not a hosta. hosta leaves all originate from a central growing point at ground level and have thin soft and almond shaped leaves with distinctive parallel veination. there are a gazillion hybrid hosta varieties so details vary.

It may be Peperomia obtusifolia 'Variegata'.
