Cheesy Stuffed Peppers

Cheesy Stuffed Peppers

Roasted bell pepper halves stuffed with spiced lentils cooked with fire roasted tomatoes and corn then topped off with melted, dripping cheese.

Did you know stuffed peppers could be that enticing? I'm not sure I did! Stuffed peppers always made me thing of ground beef which was a huge turn off for me (sorry ground beef lovers!). I knew I wanted to do a stuffed vegetable recipe when I went to the grocery store but I thought fore sure I would end up leaving with zucchini. For some reason the bell peppers just spoke to me and I decided to tackle the stuffed pepper!

Lentils are my go-to substitute for ground beef. In this recipe, I cook up onion, garlic, jalapeno, corn and extra bell pepper in smoked paprika, chili powder and cumin. Then the lentils get added along with diced fire roasted tomatoes and some water. All those flavors will develop as the lentils simmer to tender. The roasted pepper halves then get stuffed with the filling, topped with cheese and placed back in the oven for the cheese to melt. Sounds great, right?
