Stir in corn kernels and jalapeno pepper and cook further for three to four minutes or till the water is absorbed.

Step 3

Add half a cup of grated cheese and stir gently. Preheat oven to 160º C. Fill each capsicum half with rice mixture and sprinkle a little of the remaining cheese over each capsicum

Step 4

Place the capsicums on a greased baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for fifteen minutes or till capsicums have softened slightly. Serve hot.
