Stuffed Red Pepper with White Beans, brocolli and Chicken $5.52

I found this recipe on one of my favorite Blogs - Ginas Skinny Weight Watchers Blog. I love this blog because the recipes are great and she focuses on healthy and not so high caloric meals as wekk as detailing all the WW points, so anyone counting points has the work done for them. I already stuffed peppers a few weeks back and liked it so much, I am going for it again! This time around I am incorporating some protein coming from chicken, and vitamin C and K coming from brocolli, and lots of fiber coming from white beans,. So for the vegetarians out there, the chicken can be ommited, and there is still plenty of protein to be had>
