Tips  

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Choose your favorite colors of bell peppers and combine for a different color variation.

If you prefer a combination of rices, you can make this with brown and wild rice.
