I really love this recipe- I sent it to my whole family and everyone enjoyed it. It is super easy, very tasty and quite good for you as quinoa is an exceptionally healthy grain. I used oyster mushrooms and topped the hot peppers with cheddar cheese.

Forgot to review these when I made them a few months ago, they were great! Left out the mushrooms for personal preference and spiced it up with a bit of chile and cayenne pepper. Topped with ketchup...very good and healthy, will make again!
