    Delicious! Flavors similar to Jumbalaya, this is a really nice side dish, or even a main meal for two.

      I have made a variation of this recipe that does not include peppers and substitutes paparika for thyme. I also toast the quinoa before adding chorizo to the pan. This recipe is super easy and very delicious. I first had it at a friend's house for dinner and had to get the recipe... couldn't get enough! Definitely recommended.
