Beans, tomato, onion: it's a hearty vegetarian chili stuffed inside a bell pepper. If you're looking for extra kick, try topping with pepper jack instead of mozzarella.

Ingredients

  • 4 small to medium green, red, or yellow sweet peppers
  • 1 15 - ounce can vegetarian baked beans, undrained
  • 1 cup cooked converted rice
  • 1 15 - ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion (1 small)
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (3 ounces)
  • Chili powder (optional)

Directions

  1. Remove tops, seeds, and membranes from sweet peppers. Chop enough tops to make 1/3 cup; set aside. If necessary, cut a thin slice from the bottom of each pepper so it will stand flat.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together beans and cooked rice; spoon into peppers. Pour tomato sauce into a 4 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker; stir in onion and the reserved 1/3 cup chopped pepper. Place filled peppers, filling sides up, in cooker.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 6 1/2 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  4. To serve, transfer peppers to dinner plates and, if desired, cut in half. Spoon tomato mixture over peppers. Sprinkle with cheese and, if desired, chili powder.
