You won't believe that these vegetarian stuffed peppers don't have any meat at all! They are so delicious and are perfect for those that don't eat meat.

I remember when I was growing up in Mexico that during the lent season, lots of people did not eat meat. I am a big fan of meat, so that was always difficult for me, because I didn’t know of very many vegetarian recipes when I was younger. Now, though, I have been able to find quite a few and today’s recipe is one of them.

Stuffed peppers is a very traditional Mexican recipe – they usually are stuffed with ground beef, chicken, or some other type of meat, then they are a covered with a layer of cheese and topped with a homemade salsa. Today I want to share a vegetarian version of this Mexican classic.

This dish already has a lot of veggies to begin with – you start with a bell pepper and the salsa has fresh peppers and vegetables as well.

To replace the meat in this dish, I used MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™.They combine black beans with veggie ground beef and delicious spices to create a delicious filling without actual meat!

Aside from this product, MorningStar Farms® has so many other great great vegetarian options as well – including vegetarian bacon! I bought it at Walmart and I am so glad that we decided to try them out!

To stick with the vegetarian theme, I used a vegetarian smoked cheddar cheese to top the peppers before adding this delicious sauce and other veggies as a garnish.

If you have any doubts about how good these are, let me tell you this – I didn’t tell my husband that these were vegetarian stuffed peppers, and he came home and ate one up and didn’t even know that there was no meat until I told him. He loved them!
