1 Bake peppers

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C fan. Slice the bell peppers in half lengthwise, leaving their stems in place. De-seed them. Place the peppers in a baking dish and drizzle with oil. Bake in the oven for 15-20 min.

2 Prep and fry onion

Peel and chop red onion and garlic. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium-low heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the onion and cook for 5 min. Add the garlic and fry for 2 min further.

4 Add and stew

Add the taco seasoning and the tomato paste and cook for 2 min. Return the onion and garlic to the pan along with the chopped tomatoes and drained sweet corn kernels. Simmer for 5 min. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3 Fry chicken mince

Transfer the onion and garlic to a plate and return the pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Add the chicken mince and fry for 5 min or until lightly browned.

5 Stuff and bake

Spoon the chicken stuffing into the pre-baked pepper halves. Press the stuffing down firmly to make extra room. Sprinkle with the grated cheddar. Return the dish to the oven and roast for 10-15 min further or until the cheese has turned golden.

6 Make Pico de Gallo

Meanwhile, halve the tomatoes and discard their stems and seeds. Chop finely. Finely chop jalapeno and coriander. Add the tomatoes, jalapeno and coriander to a bowl, season with a squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of salt (see pro tip). Serve the stuffed peppers with sour cream and Pico de Gallo to the side.

Tips for fussy eaters

Cook a batch of the filling separately and keep it mild. Serve with rice or pasta and sliced bell peppers on the side.

Pro tip

Add a pinch of sugar to your Pico de Gallo to bring out the natural sweetness of the tomatoes.
