Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 8 serving(s)


  • 4 red bell peppers
  • 8 oz. Pepper Jack cheese, shredded
  • ½ (15oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup fresh salsa
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Fat-free sour cream optional
  • Fresh chopped cilantro
  • Optional: ground turkey taco meat


  1. Preheat broiler to high. Slice bell peppers into wedges, discarding stems and seeds.
  2. Spread the cut bell peppers across a large sheet pan lined with foil and broil for a few minutes to get the peppers a little brown.
  3. Take out of the oven and top with taco meat (if desired), black beans, corn and shredded cheese.
  4. Broil until cheese is completely melted and edges of pepper are beginning to brown. Keep your eye on it.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle with the sliced green onions and cilantro. Serve with some salsa and sour cream if desired.
