Healthy Recipe: Veggie Stuffed Peppers

Since I am giving away a WW Cookbook (don't forget to enter the drawing), I thought you might like to see a recipe from it. I have made this one before and really liked it!

Veggie Stuffed Peppers

4 red bell peppers, halved and seeded
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1/2 (10 oz) box frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup cooked brown rice

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the bell peppers until tender, about 4 minutes, then drain.

2. To prepare the filling, spray a large nonstick skillet with olive oil nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, corn, chili powder, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 10 minutes. Stir in the rice.

3. Stuff the filling into each bell-pepper half. Place the stuffed peppers in a shallow 2-quart casserole. Cover with foil and bake until heated through, 20-25 minutes.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this recipe (just in case I don't win the book). :) I LOVE stuffed peppers but seldom make them. I just copied this recipe so I can make it the next time I pick up a big bag of red peppers from Costco. Thanks again! I'm enjoying both your blogs.
