Quinoa Yumminess

Ok, so I'm not sure what to call this but it's amazing, healthy and I LOVE IT! You can wrap it in a tortilla and add toppings, you can scoop it up with tortilla chips, eat it on it's own, toss it with some lettuce and make a salad, etc. It's easy to adapt the recipe and make it your own too!

*2 Limes
*1/2 jalapeno
*Cilantro- as much as you care for
*2-4 cloves of garlic, chopped
*3-4 tomatoes chopped
*1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
*1 can of corn, drained
*1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
*1/4-1/2 green pepper, chopped
*1 tsp salt
*1 tbsp Cummin
*1/4c. olive oil
*1c. quinoa

-Rinse the quinoa in a strainer
-put in sauce pan with 2 cups of water, let it come to a boil.
-After it comes to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer 20 min.
- chop up the jalapeno, garlic and onions in small pieces put in large bowl
- Chop up the rest of the veggies (green pepper, tomatoes and cilantro) and put in the
-dump in the corn and beans after they have been drained (remember to rinse the beans)
- stir everything together.
-mix in the quinoa

Now for the sauce:

combine olive oil, cumin, salt and the juice of 2 limes.
Mix together and dump in the big bowl of yumminess!

Serve with tortilla chips, tortillas, lettuce for a salad, or whatever else you can think of...

Y.U.M. and healthy too!
