Vegetarian Chili Stuffed Peppers

When I was little the addition of chili powder, by my grandmother, to any fry pan made it a “chili fry”!  I have adapted that concept by calling this dish chili stuffed peppers since the rice, beans and tomatoes are fried in chili powder.

A little sweet, a little spicy this modified chili is perfect served inside a steaming bell pepper; or any stuffable vegetable of your choice.  Served alongside a salad these stuffed peppers are a meal all on their own.  While 1 pepper is often enough, especially served with a light salad, I have indicated 8 peppers for 6 people because sometime the bigger eaters need an extra half or whole pepper 🙂

Instructions
  1. Placed diced onion and garlic in a pan with olive oil, cook over medium heat for 3 minutes until onions begin to soften.
  2. Add in rice and chili powder stir fry for 1-3 minute just to combine then add in tomatoes, black eyed peas honey and the broth (or water). Cover and cook over medium to medium-low heat until rice is tender but not mushy; about 10 minutes. It may be saucey.
  3. While rice is cooking prepare peppers by cutting off the tops and removing the seeds and pith. I like to diced up the trimmings from the pepper tops and add it into the rice 🙂
    Cleaned Pepper
  4. Place cleaned peppers into a baking pan large enough to hold all 8 but not too large that they fall over.
  5. Once rice is done carefully spoon rice mixture into peppers. Add about a 1/4 cup of water to the bottom of the pan (just enough to skim cover the pan). Cover and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Serve!
Recipe Notes

My kids love it when I top the peppers with a bit of cheese.

I have used this same stuffing in squash and it comes out beautifully.
