Weeknight dinners are an art form. They need to be filling without taking hours, delicious without being complicated, and satisfying without being messy. They need to be more desirable than their takeout counterparts, and this is one that fits the bill on all counts: Southern refried beans-stuffed peppers. They’re perfect for finishing off any leftover rice and beans you might have from previous dinners, and they're quick and simple to make!
If you’re feeling particularly lazy, you don’t even have to make the refried beans from scratch. Using canned beans will cut the time and effort involved at least in half. And one final pro-tip: You can keep the uncooked stuffed peppers in the fridge, covered in plastic wrap, for up to two days. This means you can make a big batch ahead of time, and just pop them in the oven when you want them!
