What's For Dinner? Mexican-Style Stuffed Bell Peppers!

In this Latin twist on stuffed bell peppers, black beans replace the traditional rice and salsa stands in for the standard tomato sauce.

  • 4 large red or green bell peppers (or a combination), stems, seeds and ribs discarded, tops chopped and reserved
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup salsa
  • 1 cup canned no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, divided use
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese, or use Mexican blend, Monterey Jack, or pepper jack
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  2. In a microwave oven, place the bell peppers with the cut side up on a paper towel. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 4–5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Transfer with the cut side up to a 9-inch square baking dish or shallow casserole dish.

  3. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Cook the chopped bell pepper tops, onion, and garlic for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Stir in the beef. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to turn and break up the beef. Discard any drippings.

  5. Sprinkle the beef mixture with the chili powder, cumin, and salt. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the salsa. Remove from the heat.

  6. Gently stir in the beans and 1/2 cup cilantro. Spoon the beef mixture into the peppers. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.

  7. Bake for 30 minutes, or until heated through. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle the Mexican blend cheese over the beef mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  8. Top the peppers with the sour cream. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro.
