1 cup black beans
3/4 cup cooked white rice
4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)

Recipe Directions for Grilled Black Bean- and Rice-Stuffed Peppers

  1. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Cut three 18x12-inch pieces heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.

  2. Mix beans, rice, onions, 1/4 cup cilantro, the oil, lime juice, garlic and salt. Place 2 bell pepper halves on one side of each foil piece. Fill with bean mixture.

  3. Fold foil over peppers so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
