Skinny Stuffed Peppers

Happy Friday Eve!

My.New.Favorite.Meal!!  Skinny Stuffed Peppers!

This is the original picture I saw on Pinterest.  How amazing does that look?  I am not much of a pepper girl, but I thought it was a great "cooking bowl" for all the inner ingredients.

What You Will Need:
-4 Large Green Peppers
-93% Lean Ground Beef (or deer meat if you have that on hand)
-No Sodium/Low Sodium Red Kidney Beans
-No Sodium/Low Sodium Corn
-White Rice
-Mrs. Dash Spicy Seasoning
-Fat Free Cheese


-Cut top off peppers and scoop out the seeds

-Boil peppers for 5 min until soft
-Brown meat (add Mrs. Dash Spicy Seasoning to the meat here)
-cook rice as directed

-While that is cooking, strain and rinse the corn and beans with cold water.  This helps get rid of any extra sodium that we don't need or want in our meal.

- After the peppers are cooked, lay them upside down to drain any extra water.

-Now the fun part, assemble your pepper.

- I put the beef on bottom, then rice, kidney beans, corn, then cheese.

-Cook on 350 degrees for 20-25 min.

My husband decided to cut his open...looks delish!  You have your meet, your veggies, your fiber, your dairy, and...a little starch.

Even without the peppers, it makes a good leftover lunch.

Daily Tidbits:

-Leaving this morning to go to Philly to see my precious nephew.  I have been looking forward to this for months...makes me feel like a kid at Christmas.
-My sister in law told me that we could make that apple pie that I have been craving for over a month... I will be sure so share that with you followers.
