Margarita Friday...

Not only is it Friday but it is officially Margarita Friday...why you may be asking, because February 22 is National Margarita Day!  Wow it really does not get much better than that when you stop and think about it.   So having said that how about you make a shopping list and grab some items for an amazing, easy dinner and drinks Friday night at home.  These black bean stuffed peppers will not only save you more time for enjoying that Margarita but it will satisfy those taste buds.

I encourage you to enjoy Margarita Friday in a big way but in a responsible way - don't eat too many black bean stuffed peppers!  Enjoy...
