|12 oz||96% Lean Ground Pork|
|4||Large Red, orange and yellow bell peppers, or a combination|
|¾ cup||Prepared Salsa, plus more for serving, optional|
|1 cup||Frozen Corn, thawed|
|2 tsp||Chili Powder|
|Salt & Pepper|
|¼ cup||Shredded Reduced Fat Cheddar, monterey jack, or mexican blend cheese|
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. In a small saucepan over medium high heat, bring water to a boil. Stir in couscous, cover, remove from heat and set aside for at least 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium high heat, cook pork, stirring occasionally and breaking up, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. While couscous is softening, remove tops from peppers and scrape out seeds, then set aside.
In a large bowl, combine couscous, pork, salsa, corn and chili powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Fill peppers with pork mixture. Arrange peppers in a shallow baking pan and bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top, then continue baking until peppers are tender and stuffing is heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve peppers with additional salsa on the side.
