chipotle style stuffed peppers and mousse!
2 green bell peppers
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 8 oz. cans tomato sauce (i used one can sauce and one can soup because that's all we had)
1 can black beans
1 cup rice (before it's cooked)
1/4 white onion
1 clove garlic
1 bag of crumbles
seasonings of choice--i used red pepper flakes and cilantro and a lotta shakes of chipotle tabasco (my faaaave)
after my rice was cooked and steaming, i sauteed my garlic and onion in 1 tbsp. of olive oil. then i added my crumbles--they were mostly frozen so i turned the heat down to let the big chunk break apart. then i added my tomato sauce, black beans, and rice. once everything was combined i filled the bottom of the baking dish with part of the mixture and then wedged my peppers into it. i overflowingly (i made that word up) filled the peppers with the mixture and put the remainder around the peppers. my mixture was sort of dry; i probably could have used more sauce or less rice but it still tasted good anyways. cook them at 350 for about a half an hour. i sprinkled some 4 mexican cheese mix on top at the very end and ta-da you have yummy chipotle stuffed peppers. mmmm
i love cooking healthy because it makes me feel really good about myself and what i'm eating because i know what's going into it. it also makes me extra excited about eating healthy too which is always good especially when i'm in a rut which i somewhat am right now...mainly just the new schedule adjustment and because i'm a girl and this is what happens once a month. sigh.
