 Stuffed Peppers

4 bell peppers

2 cups cooked brown rice

1 cup fresh chopped tomatoes

1 fresh chopped jalapeño

1 cup cooked fresh or frozen corn

Dash of black pepper

1 cup grated cheese

1 cup black beans

1 teaspoon cumin

Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Wash bell peppers, cut off stems and remove seeds. Leave the bottoms intact so you can use as a bowl for filling. Arrange bell peppers on a flat baking sheet. In a medium bowl, combine cooked rice, tomatoes, black beans, corn and seasonings. Stuff peppers with filling and top with a light sprinkle of grated cheese. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until peppers reach desired tenderness. Serves 4
