Ingredients

6 each sweet bell peppers
(any color, I like to choose at least one of each color!)
2 cups quinoa
3 each tomatoes
diced (or 12 ounces can of diced tomatoes)
1 cup corn
1 each sweet vidalia onions
½ cup red beans
cooked, or canned
½ cup black beans
cooked, or canned
¾ cup monterey jack cheese
cubed
*
1 can black olives
canned
*
4 each basil
leaves
*
3 cloves garlic
(minced)
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup spaghetti sauce
½ cup water
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 375?F

1). Cook quinoa according to package instructions. (Usually entails placing quinoa with 4C of water in a pot, and bring it to a boil. Then simmer quinoa, until water is absorbed. I used chicken or vegetable broth sometimes for flavor!) 2). Add all ingredients (except water and spaghetti sauce) in a bowl; mix. Add cubed cheese last. 3). Add water and sauce together, and pour over the quinoa mix (BUT: save about ½ cup of mixture for the end of the recipe). 4). Boil each bell pepper for 3 minutes (after de-seeding). 5). When done boiling, sprinkle each pepper inside with a touch of salt, and turn over to drain. 6). Stuff each bell pepper with quinoa mix. 7). Top each bell pepper with some of the left over water/sauce mixture and top with parmesan cheese (or other cheeses that you have in the fridge are good, too!) 8). Bake for about 15 minutes. 9). ENJOY!!!

Substitute roasted poblano a instead of green peppers if you like spicier food. I have also added olives to the stuffing.
