Bell Pepper “Nachos”

I had the ingredients to try a new recipe idea that I saw in my new Weight Watchers Book… Fruits & Veggies A to Z.

Quoting from the book… “All bell peppers are packed with vitamins and minerals, and certain colors have even more of the good stuff than others. A yellow bell pepper has five times as much vitamin C as an orange bell pepper. Yellow, orange, and red peppers contain more of the antioxidant beta-carotene than the green variety; and red peppers are one of the few vegetables that contain the powerful antioxidant lycopene.”

All you need is a yellow pepper, black beans, pico, and a sprinkle of cheese!

This was a very quick and simple way to get in some much needed veggies today! :) And only 5 points plus!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    OH my goodness! Guess what I’m buying next Thursday morning at the meeting. Why didn’t I think of those? I eat the mini peppers ALL during the day….can’t believe I didn’t think to fill them with all that yummy stuff!
