I really like this recipe. Had to use chicken broth and I added a medium chopped onion, out of habit I guess. Thanks for a great healthy meal.
I added a can of green chilis, and omitted 1/2 of the cheese. I used tastefully simple mexican spice in place of the cumin and coriander. I sprinkled fresh cilantro on top and dripped lime juice on top. I have never used quinoa in a dish, and my picky eaters surprisingly loved it. I give this dish 5 stars!
What a great way to prepare quinoa. I followed other reviewers and added onion, used less cheese, and topped also with cilantro, lemon and guacamole. I think the last two were essential!
