Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

These Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers are filled to the brim with black beans, corn, cheese, and rice. Easy and filling -- perfect!


I love any meal that can be cooked in a slow cooker. I love getting the prep work out of the way and then enjoying my day while dinner takes care of itself. Who knew you could even cook one of my favorites, stuffed peppers, in a slow cooker.?

To make things easy we toss the filling together with some pasta sauce for some instant flavor and the convenience of seasonings already added in. Even though these are vegetarian, you could definitely add some ground beef or turkey as another heartier option.

First, slice off the top of your pepper and clean out the inside. This will be the hardest step of the whole process, and it’s not really that hard at all.

Green Pepper Scooped Out

The secret to the filling is using this Green Giant Mexicorn; corn already flavored and seasoned with even more bell pepper.
