Chorizo Stuffed Mini-Bell Peppers

This is the simplest thing ever -- and it is delicious. Sure, it looks fancy, but it takes very little hands-on time in the kitchen. The key is the Field Roast "Mexican Chipotle" sausages. They are so spicy and delicious that you really don't need to add any other spices to the dish. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and gather these simple ingredients:

Olive oil
6 small green bell peppers (tops cut off and seeds removed)
2 Field Roast "Mexican Chipotle" sausages (crumbled)
1/2 white onion (diced)
1/2 can of corn (drained)
1/2 can of black beans (drained)
1 can of fire-roasted tomatoes (diced)
Cilantro, cheese, spring onions for garnish
In a large pan saute the sausage and onion until browned. Add the tomatoes, beans, and corn to the pan, and mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Spoon the mixture into the mini bell peppers and place into a baking dish. Cover and bake 30-45 minutes depending on how soft you like your bell peppers. Garnish with cheese, onion, and cilantro, and then serve with a simple quesadilla and rice. At The Wife's dreamy, Austin-esque request, I put banana slices on top of the rice. I was skeptical to say the least, but it was really good. They take on a very avocado-like quality when served with savory foods. Who knew? Not TCV, that is for sure.

Yum! I haven't even seen the Mexican Chipotle flavor and I still haven't tried the Applewood Sage or whatever it's called....I'm too cheap to buy them. I need a special occasion or something.
