Jalapeno Popper Quinoa Bites

3/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 1/2 cup veggie broth
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped jalapeno peppers (no seeds!)
(or use any hot peppers, in this case, I had habanero peppers from my garden)
1/2 garlic clove, minced
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp light cream cheese
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese

1. In a medium sauce pan, cook quinoa (Boil in veggie broth, simmer covered for 15mins until all liquid is absorbed)
2. Preheat oven to 35oF, spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray
3. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa, onion, peppers, garlic, eggs, cream cheese and cheese
4. Put a heaping tablespoon of quinoa mixture into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 15-20 mins, or until edges turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 mins, and then gently remove from pan to cool completely.
