These are easy to prepare and I usually have the ingredients on hand when time or hunger is a factor. These can be as mild or hot as you want.

    NOTE: You can make less and refrigerate or freeze the beans if you're making these for 1 or 2 people. Otherwise this will make enough for 4 or 5. Adjust how much cheese and peppers to slice according to how many you will be feeding. This is something that can be made in a snap! ~~~~~~~~~~ENJOY~~~~~~~~~~
