Keep these ingredients on hand to create a super-easy, healthy, dinner recipe.

Ingredients

  • 3 bell peppers (I had one yellow, one orange and one red but any colors will do)
  • 1 15 oz can refried black beans
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 3 Tbs Mexican cheese blend
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Salsa (optional)

Directions

  • Roast the peppers under a broiler (350F for 5 minutes (or until the top of the peppers begins to blacken). At the same time, cook the brown rice (I used minute brown rice and just followed the directions on the package for 1 cup!)
  • Cut off the tops of the peppers, take out the seeds. Set aside.
  • Heat the corn in a microwave safe bowl (or on the stovetop). I used about cups of corn. Once warmed, stir in ~ tsp cumin, ~ tsp chili powder, and ~ tsp salt. Set aside
  • Heat the refried black beans on the stove, add taco seasoning to taste (I used about 1/3 of the packet).
  • Spread the black beans at the bottom and along the sides of each pepper. Top with corn mixture, then with brown rice, then with corn again. Spoon 1 Tbsp Mexican cheese blend on top of each pepper. Broil at 350F on low for 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve with salsa and/or guacamole. Enjoy!!
