  • 10 mini bell peppers halved and seeded
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 teaspoons minced jalapeno remove seeds and ribs if you prefer less heat
  • 2 teaspoons minced cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons light sour cream
  • 1/4 cup prepared guacamole for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning


  1. Preheat the broiler. Place the pepper halves on a baking sheet lined with foil. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the peppers.
  2. Divide the beans evenly among the pepper halves, then sprinkle on the cheese.
  3. Broil for 3-4 minutes or until cheese has melted.
