4 large green, red, or yellow peppers
1 lb ground beef (ground turkey works well too)
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup black beans
1/2 cup corn
2 cups tomato sauce
1 cup cooked brown or white rice
1 packet Healthy Solutions Italian Meatballs
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese, optional
Cut tops off peppers and remove ribs and seeds. Cut eyes, nose and mouth onto one side of pepper. Place peppers in a shallow baking dish prepared with nonstick spray. In a skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove pan from heat. Stir in remaining tomato sauce and Healthy Solutions Italian Meatballs blend. Add rice, corn and beans. Spoon mixture into peppers.
Cover and bake at 350℉ for 45-60 minutes or until peppers are tender. If desired, top with cheese and heat in oven until cheese is melted.
Note: This is great in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 hours or until peppers are tender.
