I love making fun dinners on Fridays! During Lent, since I am Catholic, I have to make these dinners vegetarian. This is not an issue most of the time as we often eat meatless meals. Awhile ago, I put the idea for bell pepper nachos on my "must-make" recipe list and decided that now was the perfect time to try these out.

My sister recently made bell pepper pizzas which is a really neat idea as well. Instead of a bread crust, you just use a bell pepper. For this recipe, I decided to use mini bell peppers since I thought that they would be easier to pickup than a large bell pepper.

You can fill these with your favorite nacho toppings. I chose to use MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™ in mine along with cheddar cheese, plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, fresh sliced jalapenos, green onion and tomatoes.

You can also use black beans, meat, a different kind of cheese, corn, onions, refried beans, salsa or hot sauce. They are a healthier option than typical nachos and are more of a complete meal instead of just an appetizer.
