In less than an hour from now, you’ll be cutting slowly (or not so slowly, depending on that appetite) through creamy melted cheese; a protein-packed beef, quinoa, and tomato mixture; and finally the tender baked pepper holding it all together. But the best part about it all will be the smoky Southwestern spice blend.

Wash and dry all produce. Meanwhile, halve, peel, and dice onion. Thinly slice scallions. Cut lime into wedges.

Start the filling: Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and scallions, and toss until softened, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add ground beef, and break up into pieces until browned, 3-4 minutes. Stir in Southwest spice blend, and cook another 30 seconds. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Prep the peppers: Halve bell peppers lengthwise, and remove veins and seeds. Place on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until softened, 5-7 minutes.
