Very easy and fun to make! I substituted texturized vegetable protein for meat for an easy vegetarian meal.

This recipe is surprisingly quick to assemble & very tasty. Everyone enjoyed these peppers - even THE PICKY ONE, lol, and my cardiac rehab nurse mother. ;) I found a Mexican rice packet & used that instead of the Spanish rice. Yummo. Thanks for posting!
