Stuffed peppers

Spicy peppers stuffed with minced beef, black eye beans, chipotle sauce and tomatoes, baked with mozzarella cheese. The combination of spicy sauce, beef, pepper and beans is typical for mexican cuisine. Mozzarella can be replaced with any soft baking cheese. If you can’t find chipotle sauce, you can always replace it with tabasco, but use only few drops as it’s very hot. Serve decorated with coriander leaves with hot tomato sauce as an option. Enjoy.
