No Meat Stuffed Peppers

Whenever I think of Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers, I have a craving to make these for dinner. Melted gooey cheese mixed with tasty veggies and rice, baked inside a fragrant green pepper are what you need to make this delicious dish.

I like this vegetarian recipe because over the years I have found that a really good stuffed pepper just doesn't need meat. I like to use a variety of ingredients in my pepper stuffing and if I have any leftover after filling the peppers, it makes a wonderful side dish for another meal.

Ingredients for Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers (Serves 4)

  • 4 large green peppers
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • 1 cup taco sauce
  • 1 small can chopped green chiles
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • Additional cheddar cheese for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. Wash peppers, slice off tops and remove seeds.
  4. Place peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes.
  5. Remove and let drain.
  6. Place peppers in a greased baking dish.
  7. In a large bowl combine rice, cheese, beans, taco sauce, chiles and onion.
  8. Stuff peppers evenly and top with additional cheddar cheese.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes or until peppers are tender.
