Mini Mexican Stuffed Peppers

What do you do when you end up buying big bag of mini bell peppers from BJ’s? Well you make your own version of stuffed peppers of course! Enjoy!


Mini peppers or any kind of bell pepper

Olive oil


Red kidney beans (optional but I highly recommend it)




Taco seasoning

Chipotle seasoning

Red pepper flakes



1.    Pre heat oven to 350F

2.    Wash peppers. Chop off the ends and clean the inside

3.       Line them on a cooking tray and put them in the oven and let them cook for about 10 min. you want the peppers to be soft some brown spots. This makes them nice tender and juicy J

4.       In a pot cook some rice. Once the rice comes to a boil add taco seasoning , salt and let the rice cook through

5.       In different pan heat some olive oil.

6.       Add chopped jalapeno

7.       Add some red pepper flakes

8.       Add onion and garlic

9.       Once the onion turn translucent add the beans and some water or vegetable broth

10.   Make sure this mixture is not dry. Its ok to have some sauce as you want this to be soft

11.   Once this is cooked add the rice little at a time and mix. Again make sure that this is not dry.

12.   Stuff this mixture into each pepper. I have to use foil to prevent the stuffing from coming out. But whatever trick works for you. 
13.   Put them back in the oven for another 10-15 min. keep an eye on them to make sure that you don’t burn
14.   Pour nice glass of wine and enjoy!!
