Those who know me, know I am not much of a vegetable eater. I know I know, eat your vegetables! Ugh, one thing I could never use on my daughter because she would turn around and say it right back to me.ย ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I do love peppers. ๐Ÿ™‚ So it was time to make some stuffed peppers, and Mexican just seemed the way to go. I wanted to keep them simple and there is really not much to these.. Easy and simpleย dinner, that’s my kind of meal..

      Hi, sorry it is in the instructions, step 5, 1/4 cup on each, this is an old recipe, I think WW discontinued their cheese so any reduced fat is fine
