Rice, black beans, and tomatoes are featured in these stuffed peppers, along with corn and a topping of shredded cheese. They're a nice alternative to the classic ground beef and rice stuffed peppers, and the slow cooker makes cooking easy. Alternatively, try making some stuffed peppers with both ground beef and beans.
