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

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

  3. 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.

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

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

  6. 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! :)

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