Taco Bell Peppers

This is a recipe I found during my pregnancy. I craved Wolf Brand Chili and canned tamales. Most of you may think that is gross but, when a pregnant woman has a craving, there's no use trying to stand in her way.

Wonderful recipe! We loved it! Easy to fix after a busy day. Lots of peppers coming out of the garden right now. So always looking for something different to do with them. Deffinitly a keeper. Will keep the ingredients on hand for this one. Bebe
