Monday means laundry... Unstuffed Peppers

I'm trying to get in a good cleaning routine.  So far, it's working.  Monday is laundry day.  It's grocery day.  It's errand day.

It's a busy one.

But the laundry is done.

The dishes are done.

The fridge is full.

The errands are done.

And dinner was good.

Unstuffed peppers with quinoa and chorizo.  We all liked it.  Little Guy thought it was a little spicy, but ate half of his.  It was worth a try.  And it makes a ton!!!

1 cup quinoa
1 1/4 c water

1 lb chorizo- We used mild.
2 green peppers
1 onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 can diced tomato

In a small pan, heat the quinoa and water over low heat.  Simmer for 20 minutes.

In a large pan, cook chorizo. 

When both the chorizo and quinoa are done, add the chorizo to the quinoa pan.

In the large pan, saute the peppers and onion until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes (or is it tomatos, neither look right!).

Add the quinoa and chorizo back to the large pan.

Simmer 5 minutes.

Serve with some milk and a biscuit.  (gotta have something to cut that little bit of heat!)
