Combine Filling & Stuff Peppers In a large bowl, combine the rice, 1 cup of cheese, black beans, hominy, salsa, cilantro, cumin and chili powder. Spoon the filling into each bell pepper.
Cook Stuffed Peppers Place stuffed peppers into the slow cooker. Cover and cook either on high setting for 2-3 hours or low setting for 3-4 hours, or until the peppers are soft.
Add Cheese Uncover and top with the remaining ½ cup of cheese. Cover and cook on low for an additional 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Add Toppings & Enjoy Serve immediately with sour cream, avocado or guacamole, if desired.
Replace the cheddar cheese with a dairy-free version.
Swap out store-bought guacamole for homemade. Pre-made versions may contain salicylates that could be problematic for people with asthma.
Freeze extra peppers and enjoy on days when energy levels are low.
Beans, although a great source of plant protein, the high-fiber content can sometimes cause gas that leads to a “too full feeling”. This can make breathing uncomfortable. To help, replace half of the beans with ground chicken and cook for an additional 1 hour.
