Mexican Stuffed Peppers

This recipe is a vegetarian version of stuffed peppers with a Mexican twist!

The filling is made of brown rice, vegetables and beans with a kick from chipotle peppers.  Should there be any leftover filling after you stuff the peppers,, it makes a great stuffing for enchiladas, burritos, or quesadillas.

My favorite part of the recipe is the crunchy pepita topping.  It’s made with chopped pumpkin seeds, cheese and (here’s the twist) Grape Nuts cereal!
