Southwestern Quinoa

Introduction

A southwestern twist on quinoa that works as a sidedish or entree. As prepared, a low-to-medium amount of "heat", but easy to adjust depending upon your preferences. For less heat use plain black beans or tomatoes; for more heat, add hot sauce, spices, or peppers to taste. A southwestern twist on quinoa that works as a sidedish or entree.

Ingredients

    1 can (10 oz) Ro-tel Diced Tomatoes w/ Lime Juice & Cilantro (liquid reserved)

    1 can (11 oz) Green Giant Niblets Corn

    1 can (15 oz) Kuner Southwestern Black Beans w/ Jalapenos

    1 cup Quinoa

Directions

Rinse & strain black beans until water runs clear. Strain liquid off corn. Strain liquid from tomatoes into measuring cup and reserve.

Place uncooked quinoa into medium saucepan on medium-low heat. Toast until fragrant (about 5 minutes), tossing occasionally.

Take reserved liquid from tomatoes and add enough water to make 2 cups. Pour liquid over toasted quinoa and cover. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, or until liquid is completely absorbed and quinoa is tender.

While quinoa is simmering, combine corn, tomatoes & black beans in skillet on medium-high heat. Stir frequently cooking until liquid has evaporated and ingredients are heated through. Keep warm until quinoa is finished cooking.
