Servings 6 Servings


  • 4 Bell Peppers Orange, Yellow, or Red
  • 1 Small Onion Diced
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves Minced
  • 1 Cup White Rice
  • 1 Can Corn Drained
  • ½ Cup Salsa Your Favorite Variety
  • 1 LB Ground Chicken Ground Turkey is great too
  • 1 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese


  • Cook the rice according to package instructions. Set that aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • Wash the peppers and cut them in half, removing the stems and the seeds. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray and place the peppers in the baking dish cut side up.
  • Place the peppers in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • While the peppers bake, place the olive oil, onion, and garlic in a pan. Cook them together until the onions are translucent, about 5-8 minutes.
  • Add the ground chicken to the sauté pan and cook until the chicken is completely cooked, about 12 minutes.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, add the rice, corn, salsa, and spices. Mix everything together and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • When the peppers are done, carefully take them out of the oven and place them on a hot plate. Carefully stuff the peppers with the ground chicken mixture. Top each pepper with the shredded cheese and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately. Top with more cheese, avocado, sour cream, or cilantro if you would like. Enjoy!
