Spicy Black Bean Stuffed Peppers

Okay, Veggie Guys and Gals…here is a good one!  The spice level is adjustable depending on which type of pepper you use.  You can use bell for no heat or try some cherry peppers, like me!  I removed the seeds and it was the perfect level for me.  The recipe only serves two, so adjust that as needed also.
