When I tell you I cannot stop eating these, I am not joking. They are absolutely delicious and addictive. If you love spinach pie (aka spanakopita), you will definitely love these. They deliver on all the delicious spinach pie flavors, but you get to use up your bell peppers and keep the dish low carb.

If you love this dish, you will love my Spanakopita Stuffed Mushrooms or my Baked Spanakopita + Artichoke Dip or my Baked Spanakopita Egg Tortilla.
