Chef's Notes:

• Serve on whole wheat buns with lettuce, tomato and onion. Or, pair with a tossed salad and Sweet Potato Fries.

• Cut leftover bell pepper into strips and add to a tossed salad, or enjoy with a healthy dip. Or, use in another recipe like Barley Jambalaya, Hearty Egg Burritos, or The Works Pizza.
