Updated on January 23, 2008

Are you looking for an interesting twist to a traditional stuffed pepper recipe? While bell peppers stuffed with ground beef and rice are really delicious, they aren't the most original of recipe ideas. If your family likes traditional stuffed peppers, they're sure to enjoy this unique Tex-Mex Stuffed Pepper recipe that doesn't have any ground beef or rice.

The superstars of this unique stuffed pepper recipe are two things that you really wouldn't expect to find inside a bell pepper. Once you try this delicious dish with a slightly southwestern flair, however, it's sure to become a dinner staple in your home.

Tex-Mex Stuffed Pepper Recipe


  • 2 cans of whole kernel corn
  • 1/2 cup of salsa (your favorite flavor)
  • 1 small can of diced chile peppers
  • 2 medium bell peppers (green, red, yellow or orange ... pick your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar or pepper jack cheese (or a combination of the two)
  • 5 tablespoons of Hormel Real Bacon pieces (or cook and crumble 2 slices of actual bacon, if you prefer)

Cooking Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line a casserole dish with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Cut the bell peppers in half, and remove the seeds.

4. Place each pepper half, open side up in the lined casserole dish.

5. Drain the corn.

6. Mix the corn, salsa, and the diced chile peppers together in a medium bowl, stirring until well combined.

7. Spoon the corn, salsa, and chili mixture into each pepper half in equal proportions.

8. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over each stuffed pepper in equal proportions

9. Sprinkle the bacon pieces over the stuffed peppers in equal amounts.

10. Place the peppers in your preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Serving Suggestions

These tasty Tex-Mex stuffed peppers are delicious as a main dish or a side dish.

You can even leave the bacon off if you would prefer to enjoy a completely meatless meal.

Suggested toppings include: additional salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

If you are using this recipe as a main dish, it tastes great with sides of refried beans and Mexican rice.

If you use this as a side dish, you may want to try serving roasted chicken, carne asada, or homemade beef, chicken, or cheese quesadillas as the main course.

Tortilla chips are also delicious with this meal.

You can substitute cooked fresh corn or thawed frozen corn for the canned variety.

You probably won't have any leftovers, but if you do, you can easily reheat them in the microwave or your toaster oven.
