Honeybee Health: Easy Stuffed Peppers

Is it really Friday already?! Yeah!!! Here are some easy and healthy stuffed peppers I made for dinner last night. The beauty of stuffed peppers is you can put just about anything you want in them! You can add corn or cilantro, substitute the brown rice for quinoa, replace the black beans with white beans…what ever you want! So healthy and easy to make!
*My girlfriend didn’t want cheese on hers so that’s why one is naked 😉
Here’s What I Used:
Ground chicken (or lean ground turkey)
4 Bell Peppers (I only used four and had left over mix and could have easily made 6)
1 can Black Beans (drained)
2 cups cooked Brown Rice
1 tsp Cumin
1 Garlic Clove (I love garlic so used two)
2 medium Tomatoes (or a can of diced tomatoes)
1 Onion
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
about 4 Tbsp of Ground Flaxseed 
Small bunch of Green Onion
1/4 cup of Low Fat Shredded Cheese (I used a mexican blend)
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil the bottom of your baking dish. Cut the tops off of your bell peppers and remove the seeds and stems. Heat two Tbsps of olive in a pan and cook your ground chicken with the tsp of cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Once your meat is brown add in your chopped onion and garlic clove and sautee until they’re soft. Once those are cooked set aside. In a small bowl mix your ground flax seed with a couple tbsp of water and stir until it becomes like the consistency of oatmeal (*sorry I don’t measure this out exactly I just do it by eyeing it..You can omit the flax if you want but its pretty easy and adds omegas)
In a large bowl combine your brown rice, can of black beans and diced tomatoes. Next add in your meat and flaxseed mixture. Combine well and scoop into your bell peppers. Cook for about 30 minutes until the tops start to brown and the peppers become soft. Top with desired amount of cheese and chopped green onion and enjoy! Soooo delish!
