    Step 1

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare rice according to package directions.

    Step 2

  • Heat oil in a large, nonstick skillet over high heat. Add beef and brown, undisturbed, about 5 minutes. Then, break up with a spoon and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain off excess fat. Stir in salsa, corn and rice.

    Step 3

  • Pierce peppers with a fork or sharp knife and stand up in a small casserole dish. Fill each pepper with the meat mixture.

    Step 4

  • Cover peppers with foil and bake for 20 minutes, until tender. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese before serving.

  • Recipe Tips

  • For something different, substitute ground turkey for the ground beef called for in the recipe. Or, make this dish vegetarian by adding a meat substitute, instead of the beef.

    Add a little heat to this dish by spicing up your ground beef with spicy salsa or with 1 tablespoon of your favorite hot sauce.
