The quinoa killa is back at it: quinoa stuffed peppers are the business.
I don't think I had to use my
And that's kind of what I did. (For the red pepper at least.)
- 1 package of lean turkey
- 1-2T oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1C Quinoa (rinsed)
- 2C Chicken broth
- 6-8 Red/Green peppers
- Green onion
- Toppings: cheese (I shredded cheddar and Jack), salsa, sour cream and guacamole!
Cook 1C quinoa in 2C broth. In a separate pan, saute onion until soft, and then add garlic for about 1 minute. Throw in the turkey, and cook until just browned. Add corn, bean, tomato, green onion, and cook for a few minutes. Finally, add the quinoa. Once all mixed, hollow the peppers and then stuff! This is when I threw the peppers into the crockpot, and slow-cooked them until I got home from work. (It was probably 3-4 hours or so.) About 30 minutes before I took them out, I added a bunch of cheese on top so it would melt. And because I'm boring, that was my only topping :) For you non-boring people, top with whatever you please, and as always, enjoy!
