Stuffed peppers are a one-dish-meal that's quick and easy to make on a weeknight. Halve any color of pepper and fill with Cajun spiced meat, onions, and beans. Traeger makes memorable food to share with friends and family.

Ingredients

  • 6 Large Bell Pepper, Red

  • 1 Pound ground beef

  • 1 Small onion, diced

  • 2 Whole garlic, minced

  • 2 Tablespoon Traeger Cajun Rub

  • 67/100 Cup Salsa, tomato

  • 2 Cup Rice, Cooked

  • 1 Cup black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 Cup ears fresh corn

  • 1 1/2 Cup Cheese, Colby/Cheddar

Steps

  • 1

    Rinse each pepper well with cold running water. Cut each in half lengthwise, through the stem, and remove the seeds and ribs with a paring knife.
  • 2

    Make the stuffing: Brown the ground beef in a large frying pan, breaking it up with a wooden spoon.
  • 3

    Add the onion and garlic and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the Traeger Cajun Rub, salsa, rice, black beans, and corn, and cook until the flavors are blended, about 5 minutes. Fill each pepper half with the stuffing.
  • 4

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 5

    Arrange the peppers on the grill grate, stuffing side up, balancing them between the rungs. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • 6

    Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the peppers. Bake for 5 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
