  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Heat a large skillet with 1 tbsp oil, toast the quinoa until color changes slightly and they start popping (3-5 minutes). Pour in broth, bring to a boil and simmer 15-20 minutes or until the liquid is evaporated. Fluff with a fork and stir in speces, salsa and seasoning. Fold in beans. Fill the bell peppers with the stuffing and place in a 9 X 13 baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until peppers are tender and filling is heated through.
