Mexican Quinoa & Spinach Stuffed Peppers

I had never made stuffed peppers before this recipe. I had ordered them at restaurants, ate them at friend’s houses, and seen them on Pinterest but had never made them! I mistakenly thought they would be too complicated with too many ingredients. But I came up with this recipe after looking at a dozen or so recipes online and tailored it to our tastes. The boyfriend isn’t a fan of onion/scallions, so I have to pretty much take them out of every dish I make. Pain in the butt, what we do for love :-P

First, I sautéed garlic and then added the corn, black beans, quinoa and spinach. I let this heat until the corn and beans were soft.


Then, you just stuff it into bell pepper halves!

6 Top with cheddar cheese…


Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes!


Serve with chips, salsa or avocado slices.


This is a fiber-filled dish that is sure to keep you full! The beans and quinoa add plenty of protein so no need to add meat. We’ve been adding quinoa to quite a few dishes lately, and we both really like it.
