For the filling:

– 4 large bell peppers (any color you prefer)

– 1 cup cooked quinoa

– 1 cup diced tomatoes

– 1 cup corn kernels

– 1 cup black beans

– 1/2 cup chopped onions

– 2 cloves of garlic, minced

– 1 teaspoon cumin

– 1 teaspoon paprika

– Salt and pepper to taste

– 1 tablespoon olive oil

– 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

– Fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
