Preparation

Preheat grill to low heat.

Place peppers, skin side down, on a baking sheet.

Mix frijoles with rice and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Stuff peppers with the mixture.

Mix cheese with coriander and corn chips, if desired. Sprinkle over peppers. Place peppers on grill and cook about 15 minutes or until peppers are tender and cheese has melted.

Oven method:
Place peppers in an oven-safe baking dish. Bake 15–20 minutes in a preheated 375 °F (190 °C) oven.

Homemade frijoles refritos (refried beans)
In a large skillet, melt butter on medium-high heat and sauté onion and garlic for 2 minutes.

Add beans and cook another 5 minutes, stirring often. Blend in tomatoes, chili powder and coriander; season with salt and pepper. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, crush with a pestle or purée using a food processor. Adjust seasoning as needed.
