2 Large Bell Peppers (any color)
4 Packets CarbEssentials Vegetarian Sloppy Joe
1/4 Cup Low-Fat Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Slice the bell peppers in half from top to bottom. Scoop out the membrane and seeds with a spoon. (Leave the stem on the peppers for two reasons- They look pretty and it keeps the filling from running out of the end. Just don't eat the stem.)
Boil peppers until skin has softened or to desired texture. Then set aside.
While the peppers are cooking, combine the contents of all four packets of CarbEssentials Vegetarian Sloppy Joe mix and 20 ounces of hot water in a saucepan. Stir thoroughly. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 6 to 8 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.
Lightly spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Spoon sloppy joe mixture into the peppers. Top with a sprinkle of cheese and return to the oven for 3 to 5 minutes to until the cheese has melted.
