Mexican Quinoa

I used to always see people saying how good quinoa is and I thought they were exaggerating but it is good! Dan and I have become a little obsessed with quinoa recently and there is so many different ways to have it. This mexican quinoa recipe has been one of my favourite meals so far.

What you will need
Olive oil
1 white onion
1 pepper 
2 garlic cloves
1 jalapeno
1 cup of quinoa, rinsed
1 cup vegetable broth
14 oz tomatoes
19 oz black beans, rinsed
1 cup of sweet corn
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chipotle powder
Juice from 1 lime
Salt & pepper

Optional: you could add meat to this recipe but we had a vegetarian option

Heat the olive oil
Add onion, garlic pepper and jalapeno - cook until sauteed 
Stir in the quinoa, vegetable broth, tomatoes, corn, black beans, chilli powder, cumin, chipotle powder and season with salt and pepper
Bring it all to a boil, cover and turn down to a simmer until the quinoa is cooked (it takes about 20 minutes)
When all of the liquid is gone add the lime juice and serve
