4 large, square red, yellow, or green bell peppers (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
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
1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup water
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.
