Today I have an easy mid-week, HEALTHY Mexican meal for you. I love Mexican food- unfortunately, it is usually not the healthiest. My work is currently having a competition called Green Trek. You log points for different activities and healthy eating. So naturally, I have been trying to eat a bit healthier. And yes, I know I have been obsessing over quinoa bowls lately. That is because they are so easy and you can change up the flavors every time!
For this, I decided to pack all those delicious Mexican flavors I love into a tasty vegetarian quinoa dish. This COULD be made as a one pot meal, but I feel that one pot dishes sacrifice certain ingredients during the cooking. In this one, I think the veggies would be over-cooked. You can leave out the cheese in this recipe but personally, I don’t think I will ever be capable of parting with cheese. This recipe takes less than thirty minutes and is great reheated for lunch. It also makes a great filling for a burrito instead of rice!
And just to warn you- there are more quinoa bowls in the near future. =)
