This is a slight altercation of a Rachael Ray recipe. I really liked, DH thought it was okay.

I was looking for a meat free recipe to try out and this was great. I used both red and green bell peppers. And like SweetySJD I ended up with stewed tomatoes instead of crushed (that is all my store had. I don't think it affected the flavor at all. I can't wait to try the left overs.
Will make again.
Congrats! Your Recipe was featured as our "Recipe of the Day" on our homepage! (7/9/11)
I really enjoyed this! I love veggie recipes that don't use fake meat. I used a red bell pepper and a red and a green jalapeno. I accidently got stewed tomatoes so I crushed them with a potato masher. I served it as written minus the cilantro and it was just great! This worked well as leftovers too. Made for PAC Fall '09.
