Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

Ingredients:
6 green bell peppers, medium large
corn bread, a 9×9 pan
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
16 ounces diced fire roasted tomatoes
2 1/4 ounces sliced ripe olives
10 ounces frozen corn, thawed and drained
1/3 cup raisins
4 ounces fat-free monterey jack cheese or 4 ounces fat-free cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 tablespoon chili powder

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Set a large pot of water to boil. Slice the tops off the peppers. Discard the stems and seeds. Finely chop the tops. Blanch peppers in boiling water for about 1-2 minutes per side, then rinse in cold water and set to drain. Place the oil and onion in a non-stick dutch oven. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender and browned. Add the chopped pepper and stir for about 1 more minute. Remove from the heat. Add the tomatoes, olives, corn, raisins, sage and chili powder; stir. Stir in the corn bread (it will crumble) and 3/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon the filling into the peppers. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Place the peppers in a baking dish and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until heated through.
