Roasted peppers are filled with a hearty mixture of rice and beef chili, then baked in a pool of harissa-laced tomato sauce. Finish the tops with a simple parsley salad for a pop of color and freshness.




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place peppers directly over a gas flame (or under the broiler); cook, turning occasionally, until charred, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let steam about 15 minutes. Rub off charred skins. Cut 1/2 inch off top of each pepper; remove ribs and seeds.

  • In a bowl, stir together chili, rice, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together tomato sauce, chicken broth, and harissa; pour into an 8-inch baking dish.

  • Nestle peppers in dish; divide chili mixture among cavities. Drizzle with oil. Cover with parchment-lined foil; bake until sauce bubbles, 40 to 45 minutes.

  • Toss parsley with lemon juice and 1 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle some of the parsley mixture on peppers; serve the rest as a salad.
