- Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes, but not stem. Place peppers, cut-sides up, on two rimmed baking sheets.
- Combine ground beef, vegetable juice, spinach, couscous, garlic, oregano, salt and black pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Spoon beef mixture evenly into peppers. Sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake, uncovered, in 400 degrees F oven 25 to 30 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted into center of pepper registers 160 degrees F and peppers begin to brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
- Cook's Tip: Five medium bell peppers (any color), cut lengthwise into sixths may be substituted for mini peppers. Continue as directed in step 2.
- Cook's Tip: Two broiler pans may be substituted for baking sheets.
- Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
