Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers - These stuffed bell peppers will provide the nutrition that you need for a healthy, balanced meal!

Stuffed bell peppers have been on my bucket list for at least a year and I’m so glad to finally cross it off my list.

Using leftover ingredients, I created a southwest quinoa mixture loaded with corn, beans, tomatoes, green chilis for a bit of heat and cheesy pepper-jack-feta goodness.

It’s incredibly filling and hearty, making it the perfect vegetarian option for Meatless Monday or any other day of the week!
