Pork, black bean, and quinoa stuff peppers

Image

What you’ll need-

Ground pork (I grinded my own, using left over ribs from last weekend)

1 package of quinoa, cooked according to the package directions (reserve 1/2 for plating)

Add in taco seasoning, kosher salt & pepper (I always use kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper), 1/4 cup of water and dry cilantro-mix well

One can of black beans, rinsed well

1/2 onion diced

Mix all these ingredients together, and set aside (remember to use only half the quinoa in the mixture)

Prepare your peppers by cutting off the top and cleaning out the ribs and seeds.

If needed, cut the bottoms just slightly to flatten them out so they won’t tip over.

Place your peppers in a casserole dish, and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Spoon your mixture, packing well, into each pepper.

Sprinkle with your favorite cheese (optional), I used grated Queso fresco (a white Mexican cheese), and bake at 350 or until the cheese is golden brown. 

To serve, take a spoonful of the reserved quinoa and place it in the middle of your plate.  Take the pepper, and place in the middle of the quinoa, as it helps anchor the pepper.

I served with freshly steamed green beans.  DELISH!

 

Enjoy!

  1. Oh yum! I love anything with black or queso. Your recipes are always to tasty. I need to come over for dinner at your place. How are you feeling? I know you were not feeling too good the last post I wrote. Sending best wishes.

  2. Those looks amazing, I have never had stuffed peppers and my husband begs me all the time to make them. It’s perhaps my uncertainty of what they should be like that makes me shy away from trying to make them.
