Something for the vegetarians in your group--stuffed peppers. Since these are grilled, not deep-fried, they're a healthier version of the Tex-Mex classic.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

6 poblano chiles or 4 small green bell peppers
1 15 1/4-ounce can kidney beans, drained
1 8-ounce package shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup salsa
2 teaspoons chili powder

Preparation

Prep: 40 Minutes

Cut a slit lengthwise in each chile and carefully scoop out the seeds and ribs. In a medium bowl, combine the beans, cheese, raisins, salsa, and chili powder. Stuff the peppers with the filling.

Light a charcoal grill and allow the coals to burn until covered with gray ash or heat a gas grill to medium. Place peppers on grill and cook, turning frequently, until they are soft and the cheese has melted.
