"I'm not a big fan of traditional stuffed peppers, so I make mine Mexican-style! This dish was inspired by the Mexican seven-layer dip. I love to make them on Halloween and carve them to look like jack-o'-lanterns. Serve topped with sour cream and guacamole."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

It took me making another Mexican type stuffed pepper from this site to realize how much I appreciated this one and the simplicity of it. There is a lot of flavor here with little effort. I don't feel it serves as a main dish as some of the others do but it makes for a perfect tasty side dish to serve with your Mexican food. I plan on making this one again soon.
This was tasty, and VERY cute, but I didn't like the fact that I had a lot of corn and refried beans and yellow rice left over after making these. The stuffing ingredients will probably fill 8 to 10 large bell peppers.
I substituted the beans with Beyond Meat faux meat crumbles. Delicious!
