Stuffed Anaheim Peppers

These cheese stuffed Anaheim peppers are sort of like a cross between stuffed bell peppers and jalapeno poppers. They have some heat but are not too spicy, and they’re big enough to serve for dinner.

tuffed Anaheim Peppers are easy to make and full of flavor. Peppers are stuffed with a cream cheese filling with beans and corn. Add some shredded cheese, and you get a hot and cheesy stuffed pepper that’s great for dinner!


4 Anaheim peppers cut in half long ways, remove membrane.
1 cup frozen corn thawed (you can use microwave)
½ red onion finely chopped
1 cup black beans drained and rinsed
1 cup salsa
6- ounce package cream cheese softened
1 cup cheddar jack cheese shredded
1 teaspoon hot sauce we used tapatio


Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and clean out the membranes.
Preheat oven to 400°F and cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium sized bowl, combine cream cheese, corn, onion, black beans, salsa, hot sauce and ½ of your cheese.
Using a spoon and your fingers, press the cream cheese mix into the peppers and make sure they are filled to the top. Add the rest of the cheese on top. (Note that all peppers are not the same size so you may have some left over cream cheese mix).

Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until peppers are softened and cheese is fully melted. Serve with sour cream and cilantro for garnish.
Garnish Ideas:
Sprinkle some chopped cilantro over the top.
Serve them with some sour cream, salsa, and guacamole on the side.
