Mexican stuffed peppers

I had some leftover burrito soup (we add a bit of extra rice than called for so its thicker and a non runny soup more chili like!) and wanted something new to do with it besides reheating and topping with cheese. Recently in the clean eating magazine they had a recipe for Mexican stuffed peppers. The filling was very close to my leftover burrito soup, so I thought what the heck, I’ll try it. And these were great. Another great idea for leftovers!



One cup per pepper of leftover burrito soup
One pepper per person, top cut off insides cleaned out
Toppings for peppers: low ft cheese and sour cream

Heat oven to 350. Prepare peppers and place in an oven safe dish. Stuff with a cup of leftover burrito soup.
Bake in over til peppers soften a bit and filing is heated through. I baked for about 25-30 mins. About 10 mins from finishing, top with cheese.
Once done, remove from oven, add sour cream and enjoy immediately.
