“Make” more time and a delicious Quinoa Stuffed Peppers recipe! Get the details on this @SuccessRice recipe that will leave you saying “quinWOW” now!




It's unreal how quickly time is going by! My little baby is now almost one-year-old and each day I'm just hoping to keep up with her rapid growth and sassy attitude. One day she is learning a new word, the next she's toddling around the room and giggling at me as she soars by with her walker. Honestly, she's really learning something new each second and it's amazing and bittersweet to watch. This little girl is one smart cookie and she keeps me on my toes, constantly.

Being a mom is my greatest blessing, but it's also SUPER time consuming, ya know like a 24/7 "job" type of deal... as I'm sure my fellow mama friends recognize! I'm not complaining about her taking up a lot of my time either, I just wish I had more of it to spend with her. With that said, I'm trying to find ways to make more time for family and today I want to share three of those tips.

1. Spend less time on electronics - Sometimes this is easier said than done, but log out of your messenger and take a deep breath without posting on social media for a little. It's nice to step away from your phone, computer, tablet, tv, etc... and just connect with one another. From playing in our little reading corner to having a blast trying to run around outside, being present with Delainey has been a real priority for me lately and I think we both enjoy the "extra" time it feels like it gives us.

2. Stick to a schedule - While paying attention to time seems to be a nuisance to those of us that need more of it, I've noticed sticking to a schedule really does seem to help keep me in the moment. Knowing when activities are happening doesn't just make you less anxious about what events are coming, it's good to stick to a schedule for a child's sake too. Getting overly tired, having a late lunch, or not getting in enough play time can make even the sweetest peach a little sour. So make a daily schedule, including strict eating, nap and bed times and stick to it!

Stuffed Black Bean Quinoa Peppers






For this recipe you will need:

3 bell peppers

3 cups of water

3 cups of vegetable broth


2 tbsp olive oil

1 cup red onion

1 15oz can of black beans (drained and rinsed)

1 heaping tbsp tomato paste

1/2 tbsp cumin

1/2 tbsp garlic powder

1/2 tbsp chili powder

Black pepper and salt to taste

Vegan Cheese (optional, but delicious)




Avocado sauce:
1 avocado
3 tbsp cilantro

1 1/2 fresh squeezed lime

1 scallion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup water

salt to taste





Rub 3 bell peppers lightly with olive oil, roast that colorful rainbow of tasty on the top rack of the oven, stem up, at about 450 degrees for around 8 minutes. Turn peppers on side after 2-3 minutes and onto other side after another 2 minutes. Pull these out, set them aside to cool, and turn your oven down to 350 degrees.





In a medium sauce pan, add 3 cups of water and 3 cups of vegetable broth, then submerge 2 bags of Success and bring to a nice boil.

Once boiling, let cook for the recommended 10 minutes.

While your delicious quinoa is cooking, add 2 tbsp olive oil to a medium sized pan and saute 1 cup of red onion until translucent.






Turn heat to low and add the black bean, tomato paste, cumin, garlic, and chili powder, as well as black pepper and salt to taste! Stir occasionally until quinoa is finished cooking in broth.





Next up, you'll need to start the avocado dressing. You'll begin by adding one avocado, cut into cubes, into a food processor, then add in cilantro, lime, scallions, garlic cloves, olive oil, water, and salt! Blend all together until smooth then refrigerate this tasty saucy goodness until later.






Now, remove quinoa from broth with a fork! Cut the bag open and empty the quinoa into the pan with the seasoned black beans. Simmer with a lid on for 5 minutes to fuse flavors.





Cut the stems off the peppers and clean out the seeds, now cut each pepper in half vertically.

Lay pepper halves on their sides and stuff each with the tasty Success quinoa blend!

Add vegan cheese and cook in oven on middle rack at 350 degrees for 7 minutes, or until melted.





Drizzle avocado dressing on top and ENJOY because... Success is in the bag!®

This recipe is so easy to make and so incredibly delicious, it's one I keep coming back to over and over again.
