Tuesday's Recipe Swap ~ Unstuffed Peppers

I love stuffed peppers, but what I didn't love was all the work and time put into making them. Ain't nobody got time for that after a long day of work. So, instead of broiling the peppers in the oven and then re-doing it with all the fixings inside, I decided to try everything out with the peppers chopped up and cooked alongside all the fixings.


2 cups of brown rice, cooked
Diced grilled chicken
1 green peppers
1 red pepper
1 can of reduced sodium black beans
1 can of no salt added corn
Fat free sour cream
Reduced fat cheddar cheese
Reduced sodium taco seasoning


Cook the rice according to the directions on box
Chop and sautee the veggies in extra virgin olive oil over medium heat, add about a handful of the grilled chicken.
Reduce heat and add the corn and black beans
Sprinkle on some taco seasoning to taste and then mix in 1 cup of sour cream and sprinkle on cheese
Serve pepper mixture over cooked rice
