Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cook brown rice according to package directions. While rice is cooking, rinse black beans and place in a bowl. Add corn, cilantro, garlic, onion and mix. After rice is cooked, add it to mixture. Add cumin, salt, pepper and squeeze lime to taste. Once you are pleased with the flavor, cut a circle around the stem of your pepper and remove stem and seeds. You should have something that resembles a coffee cup. Fill the pepper with the mixture and sprinkle with cheese, if desired. Bake in a Pyrex pan in the oven for 25-30 minutes. If the cheese is browning too quickly, remove, cover with aluminum foil and put back in the oven.

Once the peppers are ready. Remove them from the pan and place on individual plates. Serve with sliced avocados, diced tomatoes and a wedge of lime on the side. Enjoy!
