Southwestern Stuffed Peppers from Simply Love Food


The Project

I used this delicious recipe as inspiration for my own. Our meal was vegetarian but it would be very easy to make them vegan. It was flavorful and easy, and I will be making them again! This recipe feeds two, and the measurements are guesses, because I didn't measure anything.

1/2 cup uncooked pinto beans
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup rice
4 oz. frozen corn
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
salt to taste
2 bell peppers
cheddar cheese


I cooked the beans using the package directions. When they were pretty much cooked through, I added the rice and onion and simmered, covered, for twenty minutes. The rice pretty much soaked up all the water, so I had to add a couple more cups about halfway through. In the meantime, I halved the peppers and roasted them in the oven for twenty minutes at 400 degrees.

When the rice was thoroughly cooked, I added the corn, garlic, cumin, and chili powder and continued to cook it uncovered for a few more minutes until the water had evaporated. Then I stuffed the peppers with the rice and bean mixture, and baked them for 20 more minutes, adding slices of cheddar cheese for the last five minutes of cook time.

When they came out of the oven, we piled them high with plenty of cilantro and avocado.
