    Stylobille24's Note:

    Wanted a refreshing wholesome side dish to accompany some spicy Mexican meatloaf, and this is what happened. Use a LARGE bowl to mix as it makes quite a significant amount. With the seasoning amounts given, the predominant tastes are the lime, cumin, and cilantro. My family doesn't like spicy things, so there isn't much kick to it, so you could probably double the chili powder, increase the other seasonings, and add some cayenne if you desire. Could also be made with long grain rice if quinoa is unavailable.
