Tasty Tuesday: TexMex Stuffed Peppers

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back to another Tasty Tuesday! This week I was feeling something with a Spanish flair to try for a meatless, but filling dinner. All your meals should have protein in them to keep you going, build lean muscle and burn fat. Meat is a very good source of protein, but there are many veggies and grains that can provide that protein if you're not the carnivorous type. So I found this stuffed pepper recipe that filled with goodness.

  • Prep
  • Cook
  • Ready In
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of water and 1 tablespoon salt to a boil; cook green bell peppers in the boiling water until slightly softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until softened and transparent, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Mix Quinoa, black beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, and cooked onion in a large bowl. Add chili powder, garlic salt, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt; stir until evenly mixed. Fold 1 1/2 cups Mexican cheese blend into Quinoa mixture. Spoon rice mixture into each bell pepper; arrange peppers in 9x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle peppers with remaining Mexican cheese blend.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
