  • 4 large fresh bell peppers, halved lengthwise, ribs and seeds removed
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated
  • 1/2 pound ground beef chuck

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 375* F. Cook the rice according to the package directions
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallion whites and beef and cook, breaking the beef up with a spoon, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes.

Uncover, sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of Monterey Jack, and bake until browned, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and 1/4 cup water. Drizzle over the bell peppers and top with salsa and scallion greens.
