Recipe

Stuffed peppers are one of our favorite meatless dishes but lately I looking to mix up my traditional recipe using Italian flavors and spaghetti sauce. Since my family loves barbecue sauce, I thought it would be yummy to swap out the tomato sauce for barbecue sauce and add some corn, black beans, and cilantro to the mix. I decided not to add cheese, but you could also add some pepper jack or shredded cheddar into to the mixture as well. Then everything is cooked in the slow cooker and in about 4 hours, dinner is ready. Usually I drizzle some extra barbecue sauce on top just before serving and add some fresh chopped cilantro on top.
