Ingredients

  • 1 small bunch cilantro
  • 4 green bell peppers
  • 1 ½ lb lean ground beef
  • 1 (8 oz) block mozzarella cheese
  • 2 red chili peppers
  • 1 (5 oz) pkg spring mix (mixed greens)
  • balsamic vinegar
  • black pepper
  • chili powder
  • cumin, ground
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • paprika
  • salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to broil on high and position rack about 6-inches from the top.
  2. Wash and dry the fresh produce. (Skip the mixed greens if they came pre-washed.)
    • 4 green bell peppers
    • 2 red chili peppers
    • 1 small bunch cilantro
    • 1 (5 oz) pkg spring mix (mixed greens)
  3. Trim, seed, and halve bell peppers lengthwise. Transfer to a baking sheet pan, drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then arrange cut-side down.
    • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ½ tsp black pepper
  4. Place baking sheet in the oven and broil until peppers are tender and charred, 5-6 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. While the skillet heats up, quarter chili peppers lengthwise; seed and remove ribs with a spoon. Finely dice. (Be careful with chili peppers; do not touch your eyes and ensure you wash your hands after handling or wear gloves while preparing.)
  7. Once the skillet is hot, add the ground beef and chili pepper; cook, breaking the meat apart with a spoon, until the beef is browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes.
    • 1 ½ lb lean ground beef
  8. While the beef is cooking, shave cilantro leaves off the stems; discard stems and mince the leaves. Place half in a medium bowl and set aside (reserve remaining cilantro for the next step).
  9. Add reserved cilantro and spices to the skillet with the beef; stir to combine and remove from the heat.
    • 2 tsp chili powder
    • 1 tsp paprika
    • 1 tsp cumin, ground
    • ½ tsp garlic powder
    • ½ tsp salt
  10. Coarsely grate mozzarella.
    • 1 (8 oz) block mozzarella cheese
  11. Divide beef mixture between pepper halves and top with cheese. Return baking sheet to the oven and broil until cheese is melted and bubbly, 2-3 minutes.
  12. Meanwhile, add oil, vinegar, and spices to the bowl with the cilantro; stir to combine the dressing.
    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 4 tsp balsamic vinegar
    • ½ tsp garlic powder
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp black pepper
  13. Add mixed greens to the bowl with the dressing and toss to combine the salad.
  14. To serve, divide stuffed peppers and salad between plates. Enjoy!
