Slow-Cooked Southwest Stuffed Peppers - Vegetarian

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping. From Michelle Gurnsey in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking Dec/Jan 2010. High fiber, no parboiling, and Southwest flavor: this is my kind of dish. Note: this dish only takes 3-4 hours to cook in the slow-cooker.

Outstanding! Perfect seasoning, easy, on hand ingredients, and timing is right on-- not overcooked. Served ours with a small grilled chicken breast. My kind of food too Kate. Lol! Thank you for sharing.
