Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Pepper with Hatch Chiles and Corn

Stuffed peppers are my favorite Meatless Monday dish. This Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Pepper has hatch chilies and corn, topped with goat cheese. I love stuffed peppers because if you are only cooking for one or two, they make great leftovers. Cook once and have one or two more meals, ready to heat up after a busy day!

Hatch chiles are so yummy! You can only get them for a short season each year but they freeze beautifully so you can roast up a bunch and stock up for the year. Melissa’s Produce did a huge on-site roasting at my local Smart and Final a few weeks ago. It was delish!
