  1. . STUFFING: In a large skillet, heat the oil on MEDIUM-HIGH. Add the chopped onions and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic. Toss and cook for another 5 minutes Add the chopped mushrooms. Cook them down until tender and caramelized. Splash in some fortified sherry. Add in the beans as well as the pre-cooked red quinoa. Lastly, season and combine to the mix. Remove the skillet from the heat and set it aside to lightly cool.
  2. . ...Meanwhile, wash and prepare the peppers. Place them into an oven-proof casserole dish and lightly cover with a tea cloth while the stuffing is being finished.
  3. . Pre-heat the oven to 325F/160C/Gas3. Position the oven rack in the center.
  4. . When the mix has slightly cooled enough to handle, add in the cheeses. Give the mix a taste to see if there are any adjustments to be made. Now, stuff the peppers. Cover tightly with an aluminium foil.
  5. . BAKE the peppers for the first 30 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for another15 minutes or until peppers are fork tender. Serve.
  6. . Note: baking time could be reduced if the pepper cavities were steamed first for 10 minutes.
  7. . Buon appetito from Claudia's
