Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

People have been talking about making stuffed peppers since forever, and I’d always wanted to delve into this goodness (I like the way they look, and there’s just something awesome about stuffing all kinds of food into another food), but the peppers were always wildly expensive, so I did not. :[ They went on sale the other day though, so here we are!

I kinda effed up on this because I forgot to cover them in foil, so they got a tad bit burnt, but…it still tastes great. :D? Recipe from here.

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:
-3 peppers
-1/2 can cream of chicken (original recipe called for cream of mushroom, but I already had an open can of cream of chicken from the chicken bake)
-2 cups frozen veggies, diced/thawed
-half a can of black beans
-1 cup quinoa, cooked
-1 tsp paprika
-1 tsp cayenne pepper
-slices of pepper jack cheese, quartered

Instructions:
1) Slice the tops off the peppers and pull out the seeds. Slice a little off the bottom if it won’t stand on its own.
2) Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl. Scoop the mixture into the peppers and top each with a quarter slice of cheese.
3) Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

This is before I baked em’. :O
