Delicious and healthy, this Vegetarian Mexican Style Quinoa is filled with bell peppers, beans, corn and topped with cheese and avocado.
No matter if you have a large or a small family, skillet dishes are always the way to go! It takes minutes to create this healthy, satisfying meal that all ages will enjoy. That is why we are having this hearty, vegetarian quinoa with a Mexican twist.
It is T-A-S-T-Y!!!
I am not sure how you feel about quinoa, but I know that a lot of you out there are still not friends with this weird grain. I don’t like that for a few reasons:
- Quinoa is famous for being one of the only plant foods that supplies complete proteins, offering all essential amino acids in a healthy balance.
- Quinoa is known to lower cholesterol levels and improve the digestive system and overall health.
- Quinoa is tasty (!!!).
So, if you are not a quinoa-lover yet, I recommend you give it a try, and cook this quick and colorful dish.
Just PREP the veggies, SAUTE the peppers, ADD quinoa and the rest of the ingredients, COOK for a few minutes, and MELT the cheese on top. It’s that easy!
If you like spicy food, feel free to add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. Also, you may top this dish with some avocado pieces and fresh cilantro leaves. I found it tastes even better this way. I think chopped tomatoes would also serve as a great topping. I encourage you to experiment and have fun with this dish. VIVA QUINOA!
