Southwestern Stuffed Peppers on the Char-Broil Big Easy

These peppers were unbelievably good. Spicy salsa, hot cheese, roasted peppers and southwestern spices all came together in one of the best dishes I’ve made (or had).

  • 2 cups salsa divided, if cooking in the oven, 1 cup if cooking in a Char-Broil Big Easy
  • 2 hot peppers minced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms diced
  • 1/2 cup spinach chopped
  • 1 cup habanero jack cheese shredded, plus more for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 15 1/2 ounce beans rinsed and drained
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • kosher salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 3 bell peppers halved lengthwise, seeded, with membranes removed
  • cilantro chopped, for garnish


Cooking in the oven

  • Preheat oven to 400 F if cooking in the oven
  • Evenly spread out half of the salsa in the bottom of a casserole dish.

Cooking in the Big Easy

  • Fire up your Char-Broil Big Easy.


  • In large bowl, combine remaining (all if cooking on the Big Easy) salsa with the hot pepper, mushrooms, spinach, cheese, sour cream and beans.
  • Add the beaten eggs and season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Fill pepper halves with egg mixture. Place in casserole or Big Easy and bake/cool for 35 minutes.
  • Serve garnished with more cheese and chopped fresh cilantro, if desired


If you are cooking these peppers in a Char-Broil Big Easy you'll need a bunk bed basket to be able to cook all 6 pepper halves at once.
