Ingredients

  • 4 red or yellow bell peppers
  • 1 Pound grass fed ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Cup cooked brown or black rice or 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 Cup fresh or canned corn (optional)
  • 1 Cup fresh pico de gallo
  • 2 Teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon oregano
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • Chopped avocado, for garnish
  • Scallions, for garnish

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Clean, cut off the top and core the peppers. Place them into an 8-by-8 baking pan, standing up. If you cannot get peppers to stand up straight, stuff foil around them to keep them upright. Roast the peppers for 20 minutes in a 375-degree oven for 20 minutes.

While peppers are roasting, brown meat and chopped onions in a large skillet until cooked through. Add beans, cooked rice, corn, pico de gallo, spices, and stir over a medium heat until combined. Spoon meat mixture into upright, roasted peppers, and place back into oven for 15 minutes.

Serve immediately and garnish with avocado and scallions if desired.
