Spainish Stuffed peppers WW Points 5 each

pep1

Stuffed peppers are a wonderful way to get more brown rice in your diet! I make Spanish Stuffed peppers… My mom called the “stuffing” mixture Spanish rice, when I was growing up and she would serve it many times out of the pepper! She would say that all we ate was stuffing anyway…so she served it to us..on a plate or in a bowl..,minus the green peppers…

I enjoy stuffed peppers..and thought I would marry the two back up and give it a healthy twist..so off to creating another recipe I went..

Ingredients:
9 peppers cut length wise…I like to do this because it will take only around 1/2 cup of the inside stuffing…to fill one up ..and that means I can have two.. and we all know that two is better than one..right? ( that’s all that fit in the pan.. I have a second one!)

Next brown two hamburger patties ( 4 ounces each) and chop finely…add taco seasoning mix according to directions.

Then I prepared brown rice according to the package directions. Once done I added it to the hamburger mixture.

Next I added four chopped tomatoesdiced..one medium onion diced finely. 1/2 Cup of zero pointenchilada sauce1/2 C zero point salsamix well and cook until there is no liquid in the mixture.

( if you use canned diced tomatoes..drain before adding)
Next I used a measuring cup to place 1/2 Cup of Spanish rice mixture into each green pepper shell…pep7

top with 1 Tab of Weight Watchers shredded Cheese…bake at 360 for 45-60 minutes…serve right away.
