Stuffed Bell Peppers

A few nights ago my friend and I made the most amazing stuffed bell peppers. I’ve been eating leftovers every day since and can’t get enough!

To make about 8-9 stuffed bell peppers, you’ll need:

1 tablespoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder



Worcestershire sauce

1 pound ground beef

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can black beans

1 red onion

1 bunch celery

1 package frozen sweet corn

5-6 cups cooked quinoa

8-9 pepper jack cheese slices

8-9 large bell peppers, assorted colors

First, chop up the onion and celery and sauté them in a pan over medium-high heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

When the onions are golden brown, add in the corn, diced tomatoes and black beans.

Sauté the ground beef in a second pan. Season with cumin, chili powder, and 3 to 4 shakes of Worcestershire sauce.

Once the veggies and beef are finished cooking, mix together all of the ingredients, including the cooked quinoa, in a large bowl.

Next, chop off the tops of each bell pepper and scoop out the seeds and ribs with a spoon. If the peppers do not stand up on their own, you can slice off a small portion of the bottom.

Fill the bell peppers with the beef, quinoa, and veggie mixture.

Then, place the peppers in the oven under the broiler and broil until the cheese melts.
