Mini Mexican Stuffed Peppers
These Mini Mexican Stuffed Peppers are a great addition to any fiesta as a tasty side dish or hearty appetizer. This recipe was created in partnership with Bush’s Beans.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a little obsessed with these baby bell peppers I’ve been finding at the grocery store. They are the perfect size in my opinion, making these Mini Mexican Stuffed Peppers a great side dish for our dinner the other night. I’d like to think they would be a nice hearty option for an appetizer too, especially during football season. A plate of these, alongside some quesadillas and chips and guacamole and you’ve got yourself a nice fiesta spread. I’m always a big fan of fiesta food.
To stuff these little peppers, I used Bush’s Beans line of Latin inspired preseasoned beans, Cocina Latina. The Frijoles Negros Machacados variety is reminiscent of refried black beans and are absolutely delicious. They are great on their own, served with rice, or would make a nice filling for tacos, quesadillas or enchiladas too.
Since I used a smaller variety of pepper, these Mexican Stuffed Peppers cooked up quickly – just over 20 minutes. If you don’t have the baby bell peppers available, use the mini sweet peppers or larger bell peppers and adjust cook time to less or more as necessary.
