    I wanted to make this for a special dinner but ended up getting stuck because there were no measurements listed for any of the ingredients. I'm new to cooking vegan dishes, so I would have liked some idea of how much quinoa it takes to fill 4 peppers. Maybe you can add the measurements. - 11/19/10

  • Very Good
    Love the veggie content BUT the chili powder is inadequate for the seasoning. I used a homemade taco seasoning (found here in Sparkrecipes) instead which helped the flavor considerably. Do a recipe makeover to get the proper ingredient measurements. - 11/21/12
