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!

Enjoy!!

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.
