A big hello to all the readers of B’Khush Women. Thank you for stopping by at my Column. Today I am bringing another healthy appetizer for you. Just skip the cheese if you like, it will still be as delicious. We are making some stuffed sweet peppers today. They look very pretty and is sure to please all your guests. So without wasting anymore time, let’s make some delightful appetizers. 


Stuffed Sweet Peppers




Sweet mini peppers – 1 lb

Black Beans – 1 cup, rinsed and drained well, if using a can. (Or pressure cook and use as needed)

Frozen Corn – ¾ cup, cook in microwave for a minute

Salsa – ½ cup, Mild or medium taste, as preferred

Shredded Cheese – 1 cup

Salt and pepper – as per taste

Chopped Cilantro – for garnish




1. Preheat your oven to 350 F and grease a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

2. Cut each of the pepper length wise and take out all the seeds. 

3. In a bowl mix the black beans, frozen corn, salsa, salt and pepper. 

4. Spoon this mixture into each of the peppers and bake it in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes, till the peppers are just soft to touch and all the filling is heated through. 

5. Top each of the peppers with cheese and let it bake for another minute or so, till the cheese is just melted. 

6. Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves and serve hot. 

So that is how I made this simple and delicious appetizer. I hope you will give this a try.

Here is what she says about herself - A few years ago I would have laughed at the prospect of writing a food blog. Expecting someone to guide you on a recipe whose own cooking experience before her marriage has been next to nil is quite unbelievable. A foodie husband and his love for socializing ensured I do get a lot of cooking practice. And when I finally decided to be a SAHM, it gave me an opportunity to enhance my culinary skills. A lot of it was inspired from a number of food blogs on Facebook and some very talented people I met there. I love to cook, especially a lot of healthy dishes. Join me in this culinary adventure where we talk about our favorite topic - Food.
