Baked Bean Stuffed Peppers

The first time I had these stuffed peppers was about 2 years ago on a summer blogging trip to Bentonville, Ar. It was definitely love at first bite, and I had to find out how they were made. I headed over to the grilling demonstration and chatted with who was preparing these delicious peppers, because I had to have the recipe.
