1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large clove garlic, minced

2 tablespoons minced onion

2 dried red chilies

1/2 cup diced tomatoes, peeled and seeded

Directions

Wash peppers and cut off tops 1/4- to 1/2-inch down. Remove seeds; set tops aside. Put peppers in a baking dish. Heat oil in a skillet. Saute garlic and onion with dried red chilies until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, beans, and brown rice. Mix thoroughly. Spoon mixture into prepared peppers and put tops back on. Add 1/2 cup water to pan. Cover and bake at 375°F until peppers are soft, about 45 minutes to an hour. Serve with fiery mango salsa.
