Bean Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers

I love making up snacks/appetizers that are easy to share.  These bean stuffed mini sweet peppers were a huge hit & they’re so colorful!!

I bought a bag of mini sweet peppers and cut them in half and then removed the seeds.

I started on my bean stuffing – black beans, refried beans, garlic, basil, red pepper, and olive oil.  I combined all of it in my food processor (I added the refried beans last as they were already a creamy consistency).

Then I stuffed my peppers with the bean mixture and topped with shredded mexican blend cheese.

I baked them on 350 for about 10 minutes until they were softened and the cheese had melted.

You can’t go wrong with these!!
