I love Mexican food but trying to cut gluten and carbs can be challenging when gluten free. This stuffed bell pepper dish is a great gluten free dinner that is quick, simple and delicious. These peppers will satisfy those tex-mex cravings and help keep you in line with a gluten free diet. These bean stuffed bell peppers could even be a served as an appetizer or side dish for a larger dinner party.

3⁄4 Cup of your favorite salsa
1-2 bags of steamers brown rice
4-6 bell peppers (any color)
2 Cups of shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese
Yep. That is all that is needed for this stuffed bell pepper dinner.
