    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    I threw this together last night to have on hand to take for lunches. Similar to Mexican Rice, only made with the nutritional powerhouse, Quinoa! This began as an attempt to use of some left-over homemade tomato soup I had in the fridge. This recipe is open to many interpretations and additions. I encourage you to experiment. A can of rinsed and drained black beans or garbanzos would be nice, or some chopped fresh cilantro or tomatoes too. Also a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes can be uses in place of the tomato sauce plus water. One note: the Southwest seasoning I use is by Pampered Chef, but you can easily substitute cajun seasoning, or a mix of garlic poweder, onion powder, oregano, and paprika

      Great recipe, I never know what to do with quinoa! I used the can of diced tomatoes and did add a bit of water too. Added some canned corn into the mixture as well. Thanks for posting this healthy and yummy dish!

      This was soooo good! I used 1/2 cup of medium salsa instead of the green peppers and chilis, and I put black beans and diced avocado in it. Amazing!
