  • 1 cup brown rice, raw
  • 1 cup corn, frozen
  • 6 medium bell pepper, orange
  • 1 medium onion
  • 15 ounce black beans, canned
  • 1/2 cup spaghetti or marinara sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 4 ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup water

Serve With

  • 2 cup pineapple


  • Cook rice as directed on package. Remove corn from freezer and allow to thaw.
  • Cut the tops off of the peppers, removing the seeds and ribs from the inside of each. Dice onion; drain and rinse beans.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the marinara sauce, beans, corn, onion, rice, spices, and cheese. Mix well.
  • Stuff as much of the filling as possible into each of the cored peppers. Add the water to the slow cooker and carefully nestle the peppers into the pot.
  • Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. The peppers will wilt a bit but should stay intact; be careful not to over-cook or they will be mushy. Carefully remove them with serving spoons.
  • Top with extra sauce if desired and serve with pineapple chunks on the side.
