Halloween Pumpkin Peppers stuffed with spooky spicy Quinoa

Processed with MOLDIV

Since Halloween is such a big occasion in the USA, I felt I had to be a good citizen and join in.

This dish will delight kids and adults alike and provide a little heat as you try to keep warm after a little trick or treating. It only takes 7 minutes in total, quicker than it will take for your kids to eat all their candy!
