  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper; set aside.

    Cut each sweet pepper in half lengthwise, leaving stems intact. Remove seeds and membranes. Place halved sweet peppers on cookie sheet, cut sides up.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, mix refried beans, cheese, sour cream and taco seasoning mix until well mixed. Place mixture in resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut 1/2 inch off 1 corner of bag. Pipe mixture into pepper halves.
  • 4
    Top each pepper half with crushed corn chips. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Cool on cookie sheet 10 minutes. Top with chopped fresh cilantro.

Expert Tips

  • Take these over the top by sprinkling a couple pieces of crisply cooked bacon on top of the peppers along with the corn chips.
  • To make ahead, make as directed through step 3. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate up to 6 hours until ready to bake. Top with corn chips, and bake as directed.
