0 Recipe | "Tex-Mex Quinoa Dish" (In Honor of Cinco de Mayo!) by Sue Ready

Cook's notes: This is a healthy dish packed with protein and gluten free. It can be made in one pot and be ready in 30 minutes. As a side it pairs well with grilled lime chipotle shrimp or your favorite Tex-Mex meal. For another alternative that kicks up the flavors in this dish, add crumbled cooked chorizo sausage and a Mexican blend of 4 cheeses. - Sue Ready
