Since I had been stashing several green peppers over the last few weeks and these peppers have been enormous, I decided to cut the peppers in half and make Stuffed Mexican Peppers. I mixed corn, black beans, spinach, onions, tomatoes, brown rice and mexican blend seasonings. After sautéing that up, I stuffed the peppers, sprinkled them with cheese and baked the peppers for 30 minutes.
The filling was so delicious and made almost entirely with CSA goods.
Mexican Stuffed Peppers
2 extra large green peppers, cut in half, ribs and seeds removed
1 package of 90 second Uncle Ben's Brown Rice
1 small can of black beans, rinsed
3 ears of corn, cut off the cob
1 onion, diced
1 cup of frozen spinach defrosted
3 tomatoes, diced
mexican blend seasoning or cumin and chili powder
salt and pepper
1 cup of mexican blend cheese
In a skillet heat some olive oil and saute onion. Add in the corn, beans, spinach and tomatoes with the seasonings.
Cut the peppers in half. Spray Large pan with olive oil spray and add the peppers. Then start stuffing! Fill the peppers with the delicious mixture.
Add the cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes. You will probably have extra stuffing which is okay- you can eat that alone : ) Enjoy!
Can't beat that!
