I was leafing through one of those old "throwaway" recipe magazines this morning and found a recipe that I will absolutely make the next time I have a bunch of people over for a barbecue (which will be in just a few weeks):

Black Bean and Rice Stuffed Peppers

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup cooked white rice
4 medium green onions, sliced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 TBS vegetable oil
2 TBS lime juice
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 tsp salt
3 large bell peppers (1 green, one yellow, 1 red) cut lengthwise in half and seeds removed
1 roma tomato, diced

Mix rice, beans, onions, cilantro, oil, lime juice, garlic and salt. Fill peppers with bean mixture and wrap in foil. Put on grill for about 20-30 minutes until done. (Or, you could cook them in the oven). Garnish with chopped tomato and additional cilantro

I think these sound really good. Think I will add more garlic and maybe some cheese would be a nice addition as well.

this not only sounds delish but also pretty healthful. Like your ideas about add-ins too.

will put it in front of my folks soon, thanks Karen

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I especially like cooking on the grill in the summer when it is so hot. And I have been eating more vegetarian dishes, so this give me another one to try.

We are also eating many more meatless meals these days. This will be a good one, especially with a little cheese, I think. Add some fresh fruit to the plate and it would be delicious. Hope you enjoy.

You want a really good pepper stuffing, try using some left-over jambalaya, or, if you have a kid like mine and haven't seen leftover anything in quite a few years, make up a quick batch of Zatarain's jambalaya and stuff your peppers when your kid isn't looking.

Hola amiga, Nice recipe. Might I also suggest you try a serving of ground chorizo or ground pork. Yes, no longer vegetarian, but absolutely yummy tasting. Chau, Marti'n
