Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers are stuffed with a medley of vegetables (and no rice), including riced cauliflower and sweet potato, roasted broccoli, black beans, and corn, with enchilada sauce and Mexican seasonings.
If you are looking for a way to sneak more vegetables into your diet, or to enjoy a meatless meal once a week, or to lower your carbs, then you will love these Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers! These Stuffed Peppers are overflowing with vegetables, including riced cauliflower and sweet potato.
You say you don’t have a food processor to rice the cauliflower and sweet potatoes, or maybe it is too much of a hassle to drag out the food processor? That is ok because you don’t have to with this recipe. That is because Green Giant® has come out with a new frozen package of Riced Veggies, including the Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato used in this recipe.
I love these because it removes all the work of dragging out the food processor to rice the veggies. They have done all the work for you. All you have to do is open the package and cook!
The Green Giant Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato taste so good that no one will know that you skipped the food processor.
For these Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers, I also added Green Giant’s Roasted Broccoli because I love roasted veggies.
There is so much flavor infused into the vegetables when they are roasted. I just had to add the Roasted Broccoli for the flavor and to pack these stuffed peppers with plenty of nutrition.
I feel good about serving these Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers to my family because Green Giant Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato are 100% made with vegetables, have 70% fewer calories than rice, and are gluten free and come without sauce and seasoning so you can make them and season them to your taste.
With these Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers being gluten-free and lower in carbs, they fit into almost any meal plan.
I’m so happy that I made the smart swap to swap out the rice for Green Giant Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potatoes in these Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers.
You will also love them because these Vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Peppers are so easy to make!
