1 tablespoon olive oil

Hip2Save How to make stuffed peppers

Directions: Cut the tops off bell peppers and trim the insides. Place on an oven proof pan and drizzle peppers with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast for 20-30 minutes at 375 degrees until skin is tender. While peppers are roasting, rinse and cook your quinoa on the stove using one cup dried quinoa to two cups water. Heat a skillet with olive oil and cook chopped onion, zucchini, squash, and garlic until tender – about 10 minutes. Add cooked quinoa, black beans, and cilantro to vegetable mixture. Season with cumin and salt & pepper to taste. Spoon mixture into peppers and divide shredded cheese on the top. Place back in oven for another 5-10 minutes to melt cheese. Top with additional cilantro if desired. If you have additional quinoa mixture, serve it on the side.  Serves 6.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.
