I got the link for this recipe off of a friends blog. Its from a great Vegan Blog (if thats your thing) called Some GREAT recipes!
Anyway, this one was a winner! My son L-O-V-E-D them!! He asked to eat them for lunch the next day.

Aren't those colors so pretty?? Just stuff with spinach and your off!

Some Baby Spinach
1/2 C Jarred Roasted Red Pepper Strips
1/4 C Coarsely Chopped Cilantro
2 Small Green onions, finely Chopped
