Stuffed Peppers Cubanelle

Stuffed Cubanelle Peppers are a delightful dish that’s easy to make and full of flavor. Here’s a simple recipe for stuffed Cubanelle peppers:


  • 6-8 Cubanelle peppers
  • 1 cup cooked rice (brown or white)
  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken (or beef if you prefer)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or Monterey Jack)
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish (optional)
  • Olive oil for cooking


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Cut the tops off the Cubanelle peppers and remove the seeds. You can either leave them whole or cut them in half lengthwise, depending on your preference.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions and cook until they are translucent.
  4. Add minced garlic and ground turkey (or chicken/beef) to the skillet. Cook until the meat is browned.
  5. Stir in cooked rice, diced tomatoes, black beans, corn, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well and cook for a few minutes until everything is heated through.
  6. Stuff each Cubanelle pepper with the mixture and place them in a baking dish.
  7. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the stuffed peppers.
  8. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the peppers are tender.
  9. Optionally, you can remove the foil during the last 5-10 minutes of baking to allow the cheese to melt and get a golden brown color.
  10. Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley before serving.

Serve these stuffed Cubanelle peppers with a side of salsa, guacamole, or a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy your flavorful and satisfying meal!
