6 large bell peppers

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 small onion, diced

1 cup cooked quinoa

1/2 cup cooked black beans

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/2 cup diced tomatoes

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

For the Avocado Cream Sauce:

1 ripe avocado

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Cut the tops off of the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Place the peppers in a baking dish, cut-side up.

3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, or until softened.

4. Add the quinoa, black beans, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, smoked paprika, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the quinoa is lightly toasted.

5. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the cheese, tomatoes, and cilantro.

6. Spoon the mixture into the bell peppers, mounding the mixture slightly. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the peppers are tender.

7. Meanwhile, make the avocado cream sauce. Place the avocado, yogurt, lime juice, garlic powder, and salt in a food processor and blend until smooth.

8. Serve the peppers topped with the avocado cream sauce.
