quinoa chili

Submitted by: TAILSFOX

Introduction

I'm not sure this can technically be called chili, since I didn't actually put any spices in it.
With the 7 cloves of garlic and one whole large onion, I didn't think it needed anything else, but you can feel free to add your own chili seasoning.

This cooks up thick and hearty. It's very filling, and has 22% of your daily iron, for under 225 calories per serving.

    This was really easy to make, but I added some additional flavoring - 1 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste. - 8/18/09

    It was quite good, but a couple of family members said it was bland. We ended up adding a little chili powder to some and Parmesan cheese to others. - 8/4/09
