    Pink Princess's Note:

    Another from my first box of Quinoa - posting for safe keeping - haven't made this one yet. When I do I'll probably make the salsa myself rather than use jarred.

      This is my first time using Quinoa and it won't be my last. Very delicious recipe. I did not presteam the peppers as we like them to still have some crunch. The 30 minute baking time gets them hot through but still with full texture. I cut the recipe in half but used 4 cloves of garlic. For the tomatoes a used a 14 oz can of Mexican syle (spicy) and for the cheese a Jalapeno Cheddar. Nice and flavorful but not so hot that it would bite you. Thanks for posting Pink Princess

      This recipe just did not hit the mark for us. It was my first time making anything with quinoa and was very disappointed. My husband didn't like it either. Luckily since making this I have been to potlucks where quinoa was in a salad and I liked that. I won't be making this again.

      Yum! I made 1/2 of this and used orange bell peppers but still used the full amount of quinoa. I forgot the wine and didn't have any mushrooms, but it was still really good.
