DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in the garlic, red pepper, and green onion and cook until the pepper softens, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in the quinoa, beans, taco seasoning, oregano, cumin and salsa.
  • Add water to thin it out if it is too thick/sticky (this depends on if you use a runny salsa or a thick and chunky one).
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook for 2 minutes more to warm up the additional ingredients.
  • Serve hot in a bowl, topped with black olives, green onion and a lime wedge.
  • Make sure you tell everyone to squeeze the lime over the quinoa as this really finishes off the dish and boosts the flavors.
