Stuffed Red Peppers {Recipe}

J & I discovered this recipe in the July/August issue of My Rouses Everyday magazine and decided to prepare it as a perfect summer supper treat.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 Hatch chili or jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15.5) ounce can of black beans
  • 12 ounces corn kernels, fresh or frozen
  • 4 large red peppers, cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup avocado, diced
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, warm olive oil, add the onions and sauté until softened, about 4 minutes. Add jalapeño and garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add black beans and corn kernels; cook for 5 minutes, until warmed. Add lime juice and season with salt and pepper; stir to mix completely.
  • Stuff the mixture into each pepper half. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the peppers have softened.
  • Garnish with avocado and cilantro. (Serves 8)

They are so fresh tasting and yummy! It is such a healthy summery treat.

Stuffed Red Peppers, y'all!


  1. Looks great!! I love Rouses!!

  2. Perfect timing! I am making our meal plan for the rest of the week. These are definitely going on there. YUM!!

  3. I bet those are great! Good with steak too!

  4. Have all these ingredients, so think this just might be dinner tonight. Thanks, Ron!

  5. We just had a Rouses open in Spanish Fort, and I went for the first time yesterday! Such a great store with fresh sushi made right there! And I think peppers may be my favorite vegetable, so this recipe looks delicious to me.

  6. That looks really good! Definitely a good summer food.

  7. What a delicious meal! We would enjoy this very much!

  8. Good evening, Ron! Don't you just love Rouse's magazine? I think I'll make those tomorrow to go with my flank steak that I'm cooking for dinner--that will be a great side for it, don't you think? Have a good evening! Cheers! xoxo P.S. Check out the beach house that we are renting for Thanksgiving week on Isle of Palms, South Carolina. We've never been to the Charleston area--so looking forward to it! :)

  9. Hmmmm, delish! I 'assume' we drain the black beans? :) This looks pretty and healthy too. Will have to try it soon.
