I packaged mine up for lunches, but this would be an awesome side dish with Mexican food- it is tasty, healthy, and quick to make!
Here's what you need:
Heat the oil in a medium sauce pan, and cook the onion and garlic until soft and lightly browned. Then add the (THOROUGHLY RINSED- or it will be bitter) quinoa and stir it up with the onion and garlic. Then add the chicken broth (if you'd like to make this vegetarian, you could use water or vegetable broth), cumin, cayenne, and salt and pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cover. Cook for 15 or 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.
Then add the corn and black beans and cook until the corn is heated through...
Then turn off the heat and add the cilantro. That's it!!
This is SO good!! I think it would be GREAT in a tortilla with some shredded chicken and cheese, or scooped up with tortilla chips..... or just by itself!!
