Stuffed Peppers

  • 6 bell peppers
  • olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small jalapeno, finely diced
  • 4 green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 C cilantro, chopped
  • 2 t lime zest
  • 3 T lime juice
  • 2 t cumin
  • 2 t coriander
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t cayenne
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 1/2 C cooked corn kernels
  • cheddar cheese, grated
  • avocado slices or guacamole for serving
  • tortilla chips

Slice the peppers in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and membranes, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Discard any liquid that pools inside the peppers. Set the peppers aside.

In a large bowl, mix 3 T olive oil and other ingredients through cayenne. Fold in the black beans and corn. Fill the peppers with this mixture. Top with cheese and broil for 3 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and browned. Alternatively, bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Serve with the avocado slices and tortilla chips.
