Mexican Styled Stuffed Green Peppers

Submitted by: PJ4SBERG

Introduction

A great and tasty alternative to the Italian style peppers. Bison is a great alternative to ground beef and turkey because it has less calories and fat--without skimping on taste (tastes like ground beef).

Ingredients

    1 pound ground bison*
    1 can Green Giant Mexicorn, drained
    1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained
    1 cup brown rice, prepared
    6 medium to large green bell peppers
    1 medium onion, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 cups salsa, divided
    2 tsp. taco seasoning
    1 cup Kraft fat-free shredded cheddar cheese, divided

    *If bison is unavailable, lean ground beef or ground turkey also works well.

Directions

Fill large pot with water and bring to a boil. Cut tops off the peppers. Remove the seeds and whites from the inside. Dice up the tops (throw stems with seeds). When water is rapidly boiling, put green peppers in. Bring to rapid boil and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from water and set aside in 9x10 or 8x8 pan, depending on pepper size.

Brown meat with garlic, onion, and reserved diced pepper tops. Prepare rice according to the packages directions. Drain tomatoes and corn. In a bowl, mix meat mixture, rice, tomatoes, corn, taco seasoning, and one cup of salsa. When cool, add 1/2 cup of cheese and mix well.

Spoon mix into boiled peppers. Top with remaining salsa. Top that with the remaining cheese. Spray aluminum foil with non-stick spray. Cover peppers with foil. Bake at 350 for 1 hour! Enjoy.
