Mini Southwest Stuffed Peppers
Topped with cheese and roasted in the oven, these make a delicious, quick appetizer.
- ¼ cup cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup corn kernels
- 1 roma tomato, diced
- ¼ red onion, diced
- ½ cup black beans, drained and rinsed
- ½ tsp cumin
- 2 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 mini peppers, sliced lengthwise and seeded

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix first nine ingredients together and set aside. Slice peppers in half lengthwise and stuff each one with about a tablespoon of salad.
