Vegetarian Tex-Mex Peppers
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min.
These were OK, but I prefer stuffed peppers than contain ground beef.
Smart Ground is my stand-by brand of soy crumbles. I use them in chili, and meat-eaters can't tell the difference.
We apologize for any confusion around the vegetarian meat crumbles ingredient. Vegetarian meat crumbles are a nutritious protein source from soy. Look for them in the natural foods freezer section.Taste of Home Test Kitchen
I actually added some ground meat instead of making this vegetarian. I also substituted white beans for the black beans b/c I didn't have black beans. I also left out the hot pepper sauce and some of the diced tomatoes.
Morningstar is the brand of vegetarian meat crumbles I use, found in the frozen food aisles. Boca is another brand you might find.
I think it's called TVP or Textured Vegetable Protein. I use dried instead of frozen...it can be prepared by soaking in boiled water for 10 minutes to rehydrate. The brand I use is 'Bob's Red Mill'.
I assume that the vegetarian meat mixture referred to is the tofu/soy mixture you can find in your market's produce dept. It is very tasty.
What in the world are "vegetarian meat crumbles"? What is a brand namer?
Rice mixture is a bit dry. Would consider adding something to moisten the stuffing.
