Prep: 10 minutes      Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
4 sweet mini bell peppers (each about 2 1/2 inches long)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the kinds by Boca and MorningStar Farms)
1/4 tsp. taco seasoning mix

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Slice off and discard the stem end of each pepper. Remove and discard seeds. Place peppers on the baking sheet.

Bake for 4 minutes. Flip peppers. Bake until soft, about 4 more minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir onion until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add soy crumbles, and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Cook and stir until onion is soft and crumbles are hot, about 2 more minutes.

If needed, blot away excess moisture from peppers. Fill with soy crumble mixture. Eat up!
