Recipe: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

KCrecipe

When the team gets together for family dinner, it’s all about one thing: comfort. We work so hard during the day that the sound of a glass of wine being poured at the start of the meal is music to our ears. Personally, the sound of the sauté pan working its magic is a lullaby for my stress of the day.

Last week, I shared my recipe for shrimp scampi over a bed of roasted red pepper pasta. This week, it took me a little while longer to decide on what to make. (Being a Libra, decision-making has never been my strength!) I knew it had to be healthy, easy and colorful. I love love love red and orange bell peppers. So alas, we feasted on stuffed peppers.

Everyone makes stuffed peppers differently. I chose to gather inspiration from the Southwest. The addition of corn, a jalapeno and taco seasoning made this dish shine like a Tex-Mex diamond. You can make this extra delicious using a low-fat cheese. There are pre-packaged mélanges of cheeses in the dairy section of your grocery store.  Don’t be afraid to substitute your sour cream with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Your taste buds will not know the difference!

What you need:

1 lb ground turkey

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and diced

1 cup cooked quinoa

9 bell peppers , cored, with the top cut off

1 can of corn (size is up to you!)

1 package of Taco seasoning

2 cups low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons olive oil

Greek yogurt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees
  2. Place peppers in deep casserole dish, set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm olive oil.
  4. Add garlic and onions and sauté until onions are translucent.
  5. In the meantime, chop up the tops of the peppers and add to pan.
  6. Add jalapeno.
  7. Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink.
  8. Add taco seasoning, ¾ of the cheese and corn. Stir until combined.
  9. Fill peppers with filling and top with cheese.
  10. Add ½ cup of water into casserole dish (this will help steam the peppers!)
  11. Bake until peppers are soft to touch (about 20 minutes)

Pinspiration: Black & White

If you know me well, you know I have always had a serious addiction to black and white. Of course learning that the new trend of the season would be black and white, I knew I was a step ahead. Much of my wardrobe is made up of b&w along with accessories and decor. Below are my choices of Pinspiration from my favorite black and white pins:

Slide1{This LWD by ASOS with black accents is perfect for Spring to Summer. Match with this black and white funky mani, good for casual or evening wear.}

I’ve decided they will be my Summer investment pick.}Slide3{We’re currently working on our new office space and clearly our color scheme will be black and white with an accent color. I love this office space with a super cute frame wall and b&w storage. These thank you notes would be a perfect desk addition.}

As you know, CW23 Winging It! Buffalo Style challenged us to coordinate a perfect wedding with less than 2 weeks to air LIVE on the morning show. With the help of local vendors & Etsy Wedding shops, we were able to do just that. From decor, to the wedding dress, tuxedos, bridesmaids dresses, jewelry, florals, programs, wedding cake and everything in between, you could say we were proud of all we were able to accomplish. C & I now have a running joke that we wish all of our weddings could be coordinated in 2 weeks – fewer choices, less headache! Overall, we are so happy with what we get to do. View the entire live wedding here.
