Mexican Meatless Monday: Stuffed Peppers

I was so excited when I thought up this recipe yesterday I couldn’t wait for dinner icon smile Mexican Meatless Monday: Stuffed Peppers

Initially, I was going to put a black bean mixture in the peppers, but I ended up with more than enough filling so I left the black beans out. The soy chorizo has protein, so they weren’t really necessary. IMG 7701 thumb Mexican Meatless Monday: Stuffed Peppers

Earlier in the day I was running errands and got super hungry. I found this Honest Foods bar on clearance at Marshall’s and for some reason thought it would be a good idea. Eh. It was stale, but I guess that shouldn’t be a surprise given the source.

    I haven’t been able to find that bar anywhere. And I would have never guessed Marshalls! You should try another one not stale if you haven’t had them that way–so good!

    I love stuffed peppers! I also love mexican food so I’ll have to remember this next time I make them.

    I had snap peas, carrots and hummus for lunch too!

      They aren’t a very heavy meal, so I wouldn’t qualify them as super filling. You can pair it with a side dish if you were on the hungrier side :)
      A salad would have been nice.

    I have purchased cookies in the dollar section at TJ Maxx. They were stale, but I ate them anyway. No food left behind is my motto.

    Oh boy– those look awesome! I have some peppers in my fridge that are just begging to be made into something yummy… I think they have found their calling.
