    tips & techniques
    Cook the quinoa
    1 Cook the quinoa

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the quinoa and cook, uncovered, 20 to 22 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a large bowl.

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling.

    3 Cook the peppers & make the filling

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chorizo in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced peppers. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 6 minutes, or until the peppers are softened and the chorizo is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Transfer to the bowl of cooked quinoa. Add the drained beans, vinegar, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    4 Make the sauce

    In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the tomato paste and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the sour cream until combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Evenly top with the sauce and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
