Bell Pepper Enchiladas Recipe

Publisher Photo
Peppers are probably the vegetable that gets used most frequently in my kitchen. My freezer's constantly stocked in case I discover a new recipe to try or want to whip up an old favorite again. In a way, my parents helped create this recipe. They always taught never to waste. So one day when my husband (I'm a stepmom to two girls, 18 and 15) and I had prepared a Mexican meal and had peppers, cheese, salsa and tortillas left over, these were the result! -Melissa Cowser, Greenville, Texas
