Meanwhile, cut tops of bell peppers off and gently remove seeds and ribs.In a large
mixing bowl, add cooked quinoa and all other ingredients except bell peppers. Stir to
combine, and adjust to taste if necessary with additional salt, salsa or spices.
In a lightly sprayed 9×13″ baking dish, place peppers, and generously stuff them with
the quinoa filling. Lightly press down to compact and fill. Cover with tin foil and bake for
35-40 minutes. Serve with any desired toppings.
