Stuffed Pepper

Sorry for the low quality picture, I was so hungry I just took a quick pic on my phone.


1 package Smart Grounds Original Crumbles

1/2 c. pico de gallo (mine was homemade. You could also use cut up onion,peppers and tomato)

1 1/2 cup cooked rice (wild rice is best, I used forbidden rice)

1/2 tsp olive oil

salt, pepper, cumin and garlic powder to taste

4 or 5 bell or other large sweet peppers

Heat peppers in oven or over the stovetop to burn outside skin. Once they have cooled a bit pull of the skin part. This makes it easier to cut up and eat. Then add olive oil to medium/hot skillet then add the ground crumbles. Once it has slightly browned add the pico de gallo and cook for a couple minutes, making sure to turn down heat if necessary. Add cooked rice and seasonings. Go back to the peppers and cut the tops off and pull out the seed part. Make sure they’ve cooled enough so you don’t burn yourself. Then stuff the cooked crumble/rice mixture to the peppers, filling as much as possible but taking care in not ripping them apart. Heat up if needed and serve!

You could also just make the filling part and use it for soft tacos or on nachos. I made the whole batch but only stuffed 2 peppers so I have leftovers for lunch today 🙂
