Cook: 10 minutes
2 large bell peppers
1/3 cup taco sauce
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
Optional toppings: sliced black olives, chopped fresh cilantro
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Carefully slice off all 4 sides of each bell pepper, yielding 8 flat pieces. Remove and discard any seeds. Place pepper pieces on the baking sheet, cut sides up. Evenly top with taco sauce and cheese.
Bake until the cheese has melted, about 10 minutes.

HG Tips: Look for peppers with 4 sides (not 3). Let your Mexi’ Melts cool for a few minutes before eating. (Otherwise, the hot cheese might slide right off!)

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected?

(Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)
