Bell peppers are my frienddddsss!! They can be filled with so many different combinations of foods (if you ask me anything with cheese is a safe choice), and they are a way to get a serving of veggies in for the day!

Ingredients:
2 Bell Peppers, any color
8 oz ground chicken
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper

1/4 cup black beans
1/4 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup canned corn
2 Tbsp. canned diced green chiles
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/8 cup green onions, chopped

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise, and remove seeds from inside.  Place peppers in microwave safe bowl with 3 Tbsp water (or enough to cover bottom of bowl). Cover, and microwave for 4 minutes.  Set aside.
3. Combine chicken, onion powder, and garlic powder together. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Brown ground chicken in frying pan, cook thoroughly. Set aside.
