I made these last week and they were awesome. The only change I made was to substitute a diced, firm avocado for the peppers since someone around here won't eat them.

We had these tonight! Brendan was a little puzzled at the meatless meal on a Wednesday, but everyone really liked these. Thanks for sharing!
