Stuffed Bell peppers are a classic dish that can be created in an endless number of ways. I made these with some leftover ground pork and the taste was out of this world! I love how the tender bell peppers mix with the onion, garlic, tomatoes, corn kernels, and black beans. You can easily dress these bell peppers up (or down) based on your familyโ€™s preferences. Get ready to dig in!

Making Stuffed Bell Peppers is not nearly as difficult as it may seem. While there are several steps involved, they are simple and easy to follow (I promise)! The first thing I normally do is prep the peppers. Then I cook the meat and add any โ€œextraโ€ ingredients. Once the peppers are done, I stuff them and then pop them in the oven! BOOM. Done.

One of the reasons I enjoy making Stuffed Bell Peppers is because they are extremely versatile. You can adjust them for any dietary restriction. To make this recipe Whole30-approved, simply replace the beans, corn, and cheese with cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, jalapenos, or mushrooms. You will still get that great Mexican flavor, without the grains or legumes!
