Ingredients

  • 4 bell peppers
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 can of beans
  • 1 zucchini steamed or grilled then diced
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 avocado
  • 1-2 Tbs taco seasoning depending on how much of a flavor punch you’re going for
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese + a little extra to sprinkle on top

Instructions

  • Prepare rice according to package directions.
  • While rice cooks, combine beans, vegetables of choice, taco seasoning, and 1/4 cup of cheese. Mix well. Taste and adjust as desired.
  • Prepare peppers by slicing off the tops and removing the seeds. You can dice up the tops of the peppers and throw them in the filling mixture as well, or if that sounds like pepper-overload save them for a stir fry later on in the week.
  • Once rice is cooked, add to filling mixture.
  • Heat grill on high.
  • While grill heats up, fill each pepper with the filling mixture and place filled peppers in a cast-iron skillet or a drip pan. Sprinkle tops of peppers with extra cheese.
  • Place pan on the grill and close the lid. Cook for about 10 minutes or until peppers start to soften. Serve with avocado slices.
  • Enjoy!
