I love the flavor profile of these stuffed chile peppers.

Because the seeds and membranes are removed, they’re not super spicy, but still have a little bit of heat.

And the combination of the brown rice, salsa, corn, tomatoes, black beans and cilantro gives this dish a southwestern flavor while still being relatively healthy.

There’s also so many ways to customize these!

To make them vegan, simply omit any sour cream or greek yogurt on top. If you’re like my family, though, adding lots of cheese, and even some hot sauce, is a no brainer.

I used jarred salsa for this, but any and all salsa varieties would be a tasty addition.

You can add chicken or beef, if you’d like. And you can even switch out the brown rice for white rice, farro, quinoa, or cauliflower rice.

I like to finish mine with a wedge of lime, a dollop of nonfat greek yogurt and extra chopped cilantro. They are so so good!
