    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, halved and seeded
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, halved and seeded
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Additional salsa, optional

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the corn, salsa and onions. Spoon into pepper halves. Place each stuffed pepper half on a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 18x12 in.). Fold foil around peppers and seal tightly.
  • Grill, covered, over medium heat until peppers are crisp-tender, 25-30 minutes. Carefully open packets to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Return to the grill until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Serve with additional salsa if desired.
