Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cooked rice or other grain (I use brown)
  • 1/2 cup cooked and drained black beans
  • 1/2 cup cooked and finely chopped chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped green onions
  • 2 tsp Ava Jane's Kitchen Blackened Fish spice blend
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 4 jalapeno peppers sliced into half, seeds and membranes removed
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice such as cheddar or Jack
  • 1 tbsp Ava Jane's Kitchen Avocado Oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Combine the rice, beans, chicken, green onions, Blackened Fish, and sour cream in a mixing bowl and mix well.
  • Lay the peppers on a sheet pan cut side up.
  • Fill the peppers with the mixture, and sprinkle with cheese. 
  • Drizzle a bit of avocado oil over the peppers.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, until peppers are tender and cheese is browned.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Use this again: The chicken mixture can be made ahead of time, but stuff the peppers before baking. Reheat in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes until hot. 
For one or two servings: This can easily be doubled or halved.
Store leftovers: Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
