Recipe: Delicious Vegan Stuffed Peppers

I love these and make them often!

Crockpot Vegan Stuffed Peppers


4 large green bell peppers (remove tops, seeds, and cores)
1 15 oz can of black beans (divided)
1 cup salsa
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 handful of your favorite shredded vegan "cheese"
1/2 cup of your favorite vegan "sour cream"

Step 1: Sautee the onion in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the chili powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes,and oregano.

Step 2: Remove onion mixture from heat.

Step 3: Mash half of the black beans in a bowl, and add onion mixture. Stir in remaining half of the black beans, but do NOT mash.

Step 4: Place bell peppers into the crockpot. Spoon your black bean mixture into each pepper. Top with salsa and cheese.

Step 5: Cook on low for 5-8 hours, or on high for 2-4 hours.

Step 6: Top each pepper with sour cream and enjoy!

TIP: I often have extra black bean mixture left after stuffing the peppers, so I turn it into a dip and serve it with tortilla chips!
