Sothwestern Stuffed Green Peppers

Southwestern Green Peppers

I had these awesome organic green peppers that I needed to use, and something about stuffed green peppers makes me happy! Amelia was not having it. Peppers are not her fav, unless they're chopped and on a pizza. I always give her the option of eating something else; her choice has to be healthy and something I can prepare quickly as I am cookig the rest of dinner. Tonight she chose protein pancakes. Great!
So dinner for two it is!

  • 2 Green Peppers
  • 1 c. Cooked Organic Quinoa
  • 1 c. Black Beans
  • 1 c. Ground Beef
  • 4 tblspn. Shredded Cheese (optional)
  • 1 tblspn. Taco Seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 400 
  2. Brown ground beef
  3. Prepare quinoa according to package directions
  4. Mix beef and quinoa together, and add black beans
  5. Slice top of peppers, and clean inside
  6. Scoop quinoa/beef/bean mix into pepper, stuff well
  7. Sprinkle with cheese, and place in oven
  8. Bake 25-35 minutes, until pepper is tender and cheese is melted
An even healthier alternative would be ground turkey! But, I promised my husband beef two nights a week...I just never promised it wouldn't be stuffed in a vegetable.
Fresh peppers stuffed with protein power!!
