  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium bell peppers, washed, seeded and sliced in half
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups leftover chili
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a baking sheet with foil, and spread olive oil over foil
  • Sprinkle the insides of the peppers with sea salt, and place cut side up on baking sheet. I like to rub a little of the olive oil on the bottoms and cut sides of peppers
  • Spoon chili into the peppers, and bake for 15 minutes
  • Top with shredded cheese, and bake for additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and chili is heated through  


You can also reheat chili before stuffing and baking the peppers, if desired
