Tonight was Taco Night! I was looking for a side to pair with dinner, usually unmake Spanish Rice.. But I wanted to mix it up a bit. I turned to Pinterest and found this recipe, which I changed a few things based on what I had on hand. It came out super yummy, so I had to share it with all of you!
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cup water
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup salsa
2 cups corn kernels, frozen
1 teaspoon chili powder
salt and black pepper, to taste
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in quinoa, water, beans, corn, chili powder; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until quinoa is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Top with avocado, lime juice and cilantro.
