Chicken and White Bean Stuffed Peppers

These flavorful stuffed peppers are high in fiber and very filling. Serve this with a side salad for a complete meal. This is a great way to use up leftover chicken. If you don’t have any leftover chicken breast, my favorite way to make shredded chicken is in the crock pot. It’s easy and the chicken literally falls apart. You can freeze the broth for future recipes. Here’s the recipe. Also try my turkey and rice stuffed peppers, they are delicious!

    In a medium pan, heat oil on medium heat. Add chopped onions, garlic, parsley and red pepper. Saute until soft, about a minute. Add chicken and season with cumin and adobo. Add beans and 1 to 1-1/2 cups of water and simmer for about 5-10 minutes, until it thickens and the liquid reduces. Adjust spices to taste.

    Preheat oven to 350°. Cut peppers in half removing seeds and stem. Place peppers in an oven-proof dish. Fill each pepper with 1/3 cup of chicken and bean mixture. Pour about 1/3 cup water or chicken broth on the bottom of the dish. Cover tight with foil. Bake 30 minutes at 350°. Remove foil, top with cheese and bake uncovered another 5 minutes.
