Vegetarian Mexican Inspired Stuffed Peppers

makes 6 large or 8 medium green peppers.

Notes:
(1) We had peppers left over; after cooling / refrigerating and later meal, this dish is much better if made a day ahead and allowed to flavor-meld overnight. if making ahead, add cheese topping when reheated.
(2) Any ground/diced meat could be added - recommend pre-cooking meat
(3) Adapted from Allrecipes.com

parboil green peppers 3-4 minutes; drain and cool well
pre-cooked white rice - volume 2.0 cups / 475 ml
(alternate: 120 grams uncooked + 230 gram water per Jamie Oliver oven method)

pre-heat oven to 350'F/175'C
0.5 cup / 120 ml finely diced yellow onion
- option: saute in olive oil prior to use
drain and reserve liquid from one can ca 15 oz/ 425 grams of black beans
drain and reserve liquid from one can ca. 15 oz / 425 grams "chili style diced tomatoes" (*)
(can be drained to same bowl and mixed)

in a large bowl, combine rice + black beans + diced tomato
season with
1 teaspoon / 5 ml chili powder
1 teaspoon / 5 ml garlic salt (alternative: 0.5 / 2.5 ml teaspoon garlic powder + add'l 0.5 / 2.4 ml teaspoon salt below)
0.5 teaspoon / 2.5 ml ground cumin
0.5 teaspoon / 2.5 ml salt

mix / fold well; add minor amount reserved bean/tomato liquid if needed.
mix / fold in 1.5 cups / 355 ml / 350 grams shredded cheese - blend to personal preference

stuff peppers with mix; spoon ca. 2 tablespoons / 30 ml reserved liquid over each stuffed pepper and allow to soak through the stuffing

top peppers with additional/remaining shredded cheese -

bake uncovered in preheated 350'F/175'C oven for 30 minutes until cheese melts and bubbles.

(*)chili style diced tomatoes
this can be tricky to find depending on your area. contents per label:
tomatoes
tomato juice
sugar
salt
dried onion
dried celery
dried bell pepper
"natural flavors" - on the front of the can it says "with cumin"
