Black Bean Stuffed Bell Peppers


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add water to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Wash bell peppers, then cut the tops off. Remove the seeds and membranes. Set the tops aside.
  3. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Put peppers (not the tops) into the boiling water and boil for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove peppers from pot and pat dry. Using a small knife (or a pumpkin carving knife) cut a jack-o-lantern face into each pepper.
  5. Stuff each pepper with filling.
  6. Top peppers with cheese, then place them into baking dish. Put the tops back onto the peppers.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and peppers are tender.
  8. Just for fun you can switch the tops if using two different colored peppers. :)
