Stuffed Bell Peppers, Americas Style

Cooking time:  40 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

       I originally made these with Minute Rice, switched to regular rice...   Then I decided to make them interesting.  
I needed half of a pepper for Thursday, so I stuffed 2 1/2.... That way there was nothing left over ;-))

Stuffed Peppers, Americas Style

Total time: 40 minutes
    Quinoa makes it so much more interesting and adds a meatier texture to the finished peppers than the, more traditional, rice!  Use ground turkey if you prefer.... Something else I can't get.
