    CHRISSYG's Note:

    I combined a few recipes that I've found that I really liked, and came up with this one. It's very tasty, has lots of veggies and is low carb (what more could you ask for?) Using lean ground beef, and no rice makes this a "South Beach" friendly meal.

      I normally shy away from roasted red peppers, but it is perfect in this dish! I made it as written minus the mint. Wife hates mint! It still worked, but I think the mint would have added another level of flavor.
