Santa Fe Stuffed Peppers

Summer time is vegetable garden season around here. I get a ton of tomatoes, peppers, onions, and potatoes from my mother in law. I had a few extra things laying around that were about to go bad and 
I really wanted to make something bell peppers.

 This recipe is super hearty and filling. 
The roasted potatoes were pretty simple, I just used a package of potato topping and roasted in the oven for 30 minutes. 


4 large bell peppers,  de-seeded
½ onion, diced
1 -15 oz. can of beans
1 -1 bag frozen corn
1- 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes
10 oz. Uncle Bens brown rice/ 4 servings per package instructions
1 package Taco Seasoning


1- Place your peppers upright on a baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil over them and place them in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Let them bake for 20-25 minutes or until they are blistering.

2-While the peppers are baking, in a large skillet, sauté the diced onions in olive oil until tender.

3- In the meantime, cook brown rice according to instructions.

4- In the large skillet, combine the cooked brown rice, rinsed beans, corn, tomatoes and taco seasoning and cook for 5 minutes or until heated through.

5- Once your peppers are done baking scoop the filling inside the peppers

You will have extra filling, you can use this to make burritos on whole wheat tortillas for lunch!!
