    rpgaymer's Note:

    A one-pot wonder inspired by a recipe from Chilean chef Maria Eugenia Terragno. I make this with homemade lean turkey chorizo to cut down on calories.

      I had a huge bag of quinoa from Costco so I was looking for some ways to use it. I used LightLife soy sausage and an entire package of frozen lima beans rather than two kinds of beans. I also added some cumin. We enjoyed this--thanks for posting!

      Great flavorful dish! As you suggested in the intro I used homemade turkey chorizo to lighten this up; I don't care for lima beans so left them out. The nutty quinoa was a great base for the other textures and flavors. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
