This was good but the Quinoa took longer to cook. I really think it needs to be precooked before being added to the tomatoes.

Easy to make

I left out carrots and added some more spices and added turkey also used rotel for the tomatoes . Great recipe :)

I had too much filling for the amount of peppers to fill. But it was good and great to heat up later.
