  1. Step 1) Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Step 2) Blister all sides of peppers over gas burner, on gas grill or under broiler. Peppers will be blackened, but still hold their shape.

Cut a slit down the center of the pepper; stopping about 1/4-inch from the bottom tip. Place in 13 x 9-inch baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Stir in grape tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, black pepper and salt. Add corn and black beans; stir to combine. Stuff mixture carefully into the peppers.
  4. Step 4) Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until peppers are heated through. Sprinkle with cheese and cilantro.
