Stuffed green pepper

Date: May 25, 2011

Recipe: Inspired from many sites when searching this morning.

  • 1 green pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1 stalk diced celery
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 3 cloves diced garlic
  • cumin, chili powder
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  1. Cut the top off of the green pepper. Cut out the stem of the top and dice the remaining top part
  2. Saute the diced green pepper top, sweet potato, celery, and onion until the potato is soft, 5-7 minutes
  3. Add the garlic for 1 minute
  4. Add the black beans, cumin, and chili powder for a few minutes, until the beans are hot
  5. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl
  6. Add the shredded cheese and mix until the cheese is melted
  7. Add the sour cream
  8. Fill the topless green pepper with the mixture, refrigerate leftovers
  9. Put the filled green pepper on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 15 minutes
  10. Remove from oven and cut down the middle to eat

Time to table: 15 minutes prep, 15 minutes baking time

Servings: 1 adult lunch, 1 toddler dinner (Annie is having the leftover mixture for dinner tonight).

Ben: Like

Annie: Dislike

Notes: This was pretty good, would have been better with more cheese. I also like roasting the pepper over the grill better than baking. Annie was a fan of the black beans, at first, but then devolved into her just being angry at the world. She was in an odd mood tonight, so who knows?
