Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

I have had pretty good luck with the recipes I have tried from Vegetarian Times. This, however, was a dud. My poor boyfriend had the worst of it, since he fixed them. It was a time consuming process, in addition to the hour and a half bake time. The results weren’t worth it. They were remarkably bland. There was no cohesion within the peppers. As for what it was like when I reheated it the next day? Not a pleasant experience. I will not be making this again.

Recipe: Chili


In reality, this is more a relation of the day’s incarnation of chili than a recipe. I don’t think my chili is ever the same. So, in today’s:

2 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion
2 large cloves garlic
6 habanero peppers
2 cans diced tomatoes, drained
1 can tomato sauce
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can kidney beans, drained & rinsed
1 can refried beans
cayenne pepper
dried cilantro
ground cumin

I sauteed ground beef until it was fully browned, then put it in a large Crock Pot. Next I chopped the onion, garlic & peppers. Be certain to wear gloves for the peppers, or you will be in a world of hurt. I sauteed the veggies in the grease from the ground beef. I added them and the canned items to the Crock Pot as well. The spices I added to taste. Stirred it all together, turned it on high and it’ll cook throughout the day. I’ll be serving it with shredded cheese, sour cream, and cornbread. Should be a tasty meal!
