A couple years ago, I discovered that my oldest son loves rice. He will gobble up anything if it has rice in it. Trying to make a concerted effort to make more healthy meals, I started switching out rice with quinoa. He didn’t notice a difference, and yet, he absolutely loved it! Suddenly I realized I could make anything with quinoa!
I’ve made various versions of this recipe throughout the years, but this recipe is by far one of the best versions we’ve had. The beans and quinoa provide tons of protein, which means you can serve this as a side dish, or you can serve it as an entree instead! This Mexican inspired dish is delicious whether it’s cold or hot, so it’s also good to take leftovers to work.
