We decided to fill these Burrito Bowl Stuffed Peppers with Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice, spicy chorizo, corn, pico de gallo, and Monterey Jack cheese. Bryan was in the mood for something with a little spice which is why we went with chorizo for this recipe. I don’t find the meal super spicy though as the rice and cheese definitely help to balance out the spices from the meat. However, if you don’t want chorizo, you can easily substitute out for your meat of choice – ground turkey, shredded chicken, etc. Love Chipotle but don’t always want to spend the money?

Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Cook your rice, following the directions for the rice you are using.

  3. Put your chorizo into a medium-large saute pan and cook until meat has lightly browned. Drain off grease. 

  4. Add the cooked Vigo Cilantro Lime Rice into the meat mixture and stir together. Then add in black beans, corn, and Pico de Gallo. 

  5. Remove core and seeds from your bell peppers and prep them for desired shape - either top removed to be filled whole or cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise. Then, place in baking dish.

  6. Spoon the meat mixture into each pepper, filling it as much as possible. Then, add chicken broth into the bottom of the pan; enough to cover the entire bottom in a thin layer. Cover tight with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes.
