  4. Top with tomatoes, cheese, avocado, and toppings of your choice.

That’s all there is to it! If you want to spice it up a bit, you can add a little hot sauce (or a lot, depending on how spicy you want it!) to the mix. One fabulous thing about this recipe is that you can easily multiply the ingredients to make enough for a larger crowd. It’s also pretty cost-effective. The peppers are the most expensive item, and if you shop smart, you can usually find them on sale for $1 each (at least in my area, maybe they are even cheaper in other places). If you’re planning to serve it to a crowd, you can put out different toppings in pretty bowls and make it kind of like a buffet.

  1. This looks great. I love all kinds of rice dishes, and so do my daughters. I love that it’s vegetarian too. My oldest daughter doesn’t really eat much meat, so I bet she’ll love this.

  2. I am going to have to try this recipe. It is something that my family would eat and you could even add chicken if you aren’t vegetarian.

  3. The idea of eating vegetarian can sound pretty scary to some peoples taste buds. Luckily this recipe looks very tasty. Definitely going to give this one a shot ASAP.

  5. I love this! We have been talking about working on some vegetarian meals … well okay, meatless meals … into our meal planning and I have been looking for things that my family would love. You say TACO and they come running. Thank you for the inspiration!

  6. As a vegetarian I am always looking for new recipes to add to my dinner repertoire! This one is definitely getting added to the weekly rotation!

  7. Thank you I am always after new meal inspiration, especially vegetarian. My son is doing cooking for his Duke of Edinburgh award and am sure he would love this dish – especially as he has the option to make it hotter!
