  • 4 large bell peppers
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or your favorite)
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 pound ground sausage
  • 1/2 cup cooked rice
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Lightly brush the peppers with olive oil and place them in a baking dish.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and garlic, sauté until fragrant and translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the ground sausage and cook until browned, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks. Stir in the chopped mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes until they are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooked sausage mixture, cooked rice, and 1 cup of shredded cheese. Mix well to ensure the cheese is evenly distributed.
  4. Spoon the sausage mixture into each bell pepper, packing it in tightly. Place the stuffed peppers back into the baking dish. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the peppers are tender and the tops are slightly browned.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine the sweet corn kernels, finely chopped red onion, minced jalapeño, and chopped cilantro. Add the juice of 1 lime and 1 tablespoon of honey. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
  6. Once the stuffed peppers are done baking, remove them from the oven. Serve each stuffed pepper with a generous spoonful of sweet corn salsa on top or on the side.

Enjoy this flavorful and hearty meal that brings together the savory richness of cheese and sausage with the fresh, sweet, and spicy notes of corn salsa. It's a perfect combination that will leave everyone at the table satisfied and asking for seconds!
