LET’S MAKE VEGAN STUFFED PEPPERS
Erin Riley-Carrasco does it again with her amazing rainbow vegan stuffed peppers that will absolutely blow your mind. If you are looking for ways to bring color into your meals this recipe is perfect. Colorful, nutrient-rich, and oh so delicious!
WHY ARE THESE VEGAN STUFFED PEPPERS SPECIAL?
These Spectacular Stuffed Bell Peppers have a kick to them and are SOOO delicious! This recipe has a Mexican flare so Erin pairs the bell peppers with cilantro, vegan sour cream, and salsa as well as tortilla chips on the side for some crunch! The peppers are filled with a yummy black bean and corn mixture with lots of spices. The homemade Cheese Sauce sets off the flavor and turns these peppers into something really special. This is a super healthy meal that doesn’t lack flavor, so I hope you give it a try!
