If you find yourself adding hot sauce to your stuffed green peppers or if you crave something different for Mexican night than the same old boring tacos, then this is the recipe for you. Substitute a can of spicy diced tomatoes to really kick this peppers up a notch. Your guests might like these with a little sour cream on the side too.
1. Wash the peppers and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds.
2. Place the peppers, cut side facing down, on a rack above boiling water.
3. Cover the pot and steam for about 10 minutes, or until the peppers are just beginning to get soft. To ensure even cooked, do not stack the peppers on top of each other; keep them in a single layer. If you have a wok with a steaming rack, all the peppers can be steamed at the same time. If not, do them in two batches.
4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onions, celery, cumin, chili powder, basil and oregano. Saute until the onions are almost tender.
5. Add the cooked rice and beans. Mix well; then add the cayenne to taste. Mix again.
