  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (make sure you rinse it)
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 (14 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 bell peppers (I used green, but you can use whatever kind you like)
  • Grated cheddar, for garnish, if desired



Step 1

1. Halve the peppers and remove seeds and white membranes inside. Place each halve (inside side up) in the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker.

2. In a bowl stir together the quinoa, salsa, salt, cumin, garlic powder and beans.

3. Place a scoop of quinoa mixture into each bell pepper halve.

4. Cover slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 3 hours or on LOW for about 5 hours.

5. Carefully scoop out each pepper and serve topped with grated cheese, if desired.
