Slow Cooker Southwest Quinoa Stuffed Peppers


  • 3 large bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups salsa (if you have Southwest-flavored salsa, even better!)
  • 1 4-ounce can diced green chiles
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/2 cup yellow corn
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • optional toppings: chopped cilantro, sour cream, diced jalapeƱos
  • Instructions

  • Cut bell peppers in half, remove and discard stems, membranes, and seeds. Spray the inside of your slow cooker with nonstick spray. Place peppers in the slow cooker side by side (squish them a bit if you need to). ***see note***
  • In a bowl, stir together uncooked quinoa, salsa, green chiles, black beans, corn, and seasonings. Spoon mixture into the peppers inside the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
  • About 30 minutes before serving, uncover slow cooker. Sprinkle cheese on top of stuffed peppers. Cover and allow to cook another 20-30 minutes (the cheese will get melty). Serve warm and top with cilantro, sour cream, and jalapeƱos as desired.
