  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer’s instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. Remove pot carefully using oven mitts, fluff quinoa with a fork, and let cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, red bell pepper, garlic, and cumin; cook and stir until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in corn until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir black beans, onion mixture, 1 cup Colby Jack cheese, and green salsa into the pot of quinoa. Spread mixture in a large baking dish.
  • Dissolve tomato paste in 3/4 cup hot water. Drizzle over the quinoa mixture. Sprinkle remaining Colby Jack cheese evenly over the top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 25 minutes. Garnish with remaining cilantro and scallions.
