Juliann Esquivel


I made up this recipe about 30 years ago while attending Weight Watchers meetings. we were each given a list of ingredients and told to make up some recipes. We were to come back the following week with the recipe. It is meatless but very filling, and tasty. Enjoy

3You can serve this with a nice crispy salad or as a side to a meat dish. Sometimes if I have lots of peppers I make a whole pot full . I will warm the next day for lunch or for a left over meal. They are better the next day.
4Above I have four peppers two green , one red, and one yellow. I have split the red one to show the cheese and bread filling. These peppers are truly delicious. They are falling apart but so good. Enjoy
