  1.                A Classic Recipe Makeover

    It's true that classics never go out of style, but they can also evolve to keep current while still maintaining their original appeal.

    For example, take the iconic tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich duo. Today's tomato soup might be seasoned with herbs and garlic, and the grilled cheese might swap goat cheese and mozzarella for the traditional American or cheddar. Meatloaf could be prepared with sriracha replacing Worcestershire sauce or other seasonings.

    Another updated idea is for stuffed peppers. It's easy to give them a Tex-Mex spin simply by using a can of READ Southwestern Bean Salad as the base for the filling. The salad already has black and kidney beans, hominy and corn in it, as well as a slightly spicy dressing. Build on that flavorful combination by adding browned ground beef or turkey, cheese and tortilla chips. Poblano peppers could be substituted for bell peppers for an even more authentic south-of-the-border flair.

    While this meal in a pepper bakes, make a salad of spinach or other greens topped with avocado slices and orange segments. Dinner is done and on the table in under an hour.  For more easy, flavorful dinner ideas, visit

  2. Southwestern Bean Salad Stuffed Peppers



    Prep time: 20 minutes
    Cook time: 25 minutes
    Servings: 6

    INGREDIENTS:

    1    can (15 ounces) READ Southwestern Bean Salad
    1    teaspoon ground cumin
    1    small jalapeno pepper, minced (optional)    
    1/2    pound ground lean beef (90 percent lean)
    1/2    cup chopped onion
    3    large bell peppers, any color or combination
        nonstick cooking spray
    1    cup crushed tortilla chips, plus 1/4 cup (optional), divided
    1    cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided


    Drain bean salad; discard liquid. With fork, mash half of beans until chunky. Combine with remaining beans. Stir in cumin and jalapeno, if desired; set aside.
     
    In medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef and onion 8-10 minutes until ground beef is completely cooked, stirring frequently.
     
    Cut bell peppers in half, lengthwise. Remove membranes and seeds. Line baking pan with aluminum foil. Spray with nonstick cooking spray (or brush lightly with vegetable oil).
    Heat oven to 350 F.
     
    Combine ground beef and onion mixture with bean mixture. Stir in 1 cup tortilla chips and 1/2 cup cheese. Divide evenly among peppers. Arrange peppers cut-side up in prepared pan; peppers should fit snugly. Top with remaining crushed tortilla chips, if desired. Bake, covered, 25 minutes, or until peppers are tender and filling is heated through. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake, uncovered, until cheese melts.
    Variation: Ground chicken or turkey breast may be substituted for ground beef. Add 2 teaspoons vegetable oil to skillet and heat until hot before adding ground chicken or turkey and onion to skillet.
