oh yes!

Mexican Stuffed Peppers

1 pound ground beef

3 peppers (orange, yellow, red or green)

1 can corn

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

1 bunch green onions, chopped

1 cup white rice, cooked

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup salsa

1 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Dried cilantro (or fresh) for garnish (I skipped this.  I think there is no in-between with cilantro; one either likes it or dislikes it.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Wash peppers and cut in half, lengthwise.  Scrape out seeds and place in baking dish and set aside.

Brown ground beef and drain excess juices. Add meat to large bowl and set aside. Cook rice according to package, using chicken broth instead of water. Add rice to the cooked meat. Drain corn and black beans (rinsed) and add to the rice-beef mixture.

Add salsa and 1 cup of cheese to the mixture. Add seasonings and mix thoroughly. Spoon the mixture into the peppers and place b back into the baking dish. Cover with tinfoil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and top with remaining cheese (as much as you wish!). Sprinkle green onions and cilantro on top and place back into the oven for another 15 minutes.

I just poured the left-over mixture (after filling the peppers) over the top before baking.  I also covered with cheese and baked – then, added more cheese for the last 15 minutes.  We do love the cheese!

Top with sour cream or more salsa – or Jalapeno peppers if you wish.  I thought about topping with avocado (but thought of it too late!).

Enjoy!

I obtained this marvelous recipe on Divalicious Menu posted on Facebook.  We really – really – liked this dish!
