1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Prep the peppers by washing them and cutting off the tops. Remove the membrane and seeds, set aside.

3. Next, drain and rinse the black beans. Shred the cheddar cheese.

4. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the filling ingredients - add the uncooked rice, black beans, salsa, shredded cheese, hot sauce, chili powder, cumin and sauerkraut.

5. Spoon the filling into the bell peppers and place on a baking dish. Put the tops of the peppers back on and cook for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is cooked and the rice is soft.
