1.Preheat the oven to 220°C. Spray or brush the skins of the peppers lightly with oil and arrange in a shallow roasting pan.
2.In a bowl combine the cooked rice and quinoa, the black beans, chopped tomatoes, ground chilli and chilli beans in sauce. Season with salt, stir in the coriander and spoon the mixture into the hollowed-out skins.
3.Top with grated cheese and bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbling and golden brown on top.

Cut the peppers so they lie flat in the pan. If they are misshapen and toppling over, prop them up with a piece of crumpled foil. They will become more stable as they soften during cooking.
