Mexican Quinoa & Pintos Stuffed Poblanos

I LOVE poblano peppers. They're mild and delicious and I could eat them in everything!

I made Mexican Quinoa & Pintos with the intent to stuff poblanos with it... and I'm SO glad I did!!

These were so tender and tasty! Tawny and I each had one and really liked them. I sent one across the street to Erin too and deemed it blogworthy!

So there you have it!
