Quinoa Super Tacos

Recipe by Chicksluvrock
READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 3 tacos




  • Cook quinoa as directed on package. Quinoa takes about 15 minutes to cook, so you can prepare the other ingredients in the mean time.
  • Dice Tomato. Heat a pan over medium heat. Saute tomato for a few minutes until tender while adding a dash or two (more or less depending on your taste) of Jalapeno sauce while you saute. Remove from heat and pour tomatoes in a small dish. Return pan to heat. You will use the pan to toast the tortillas.
  • Heat up refried beans on the stove or in the microwave, whichever you prefer. If you are only making one serving, I recommend using only 1/2 the can.
  • Return to warm pan that you had sauteed the tomatoes inches Toast one tortilla at a time for about a minute on each side, just enough so they are warm. By this time, Quinoa should be done.
  • Spread out tortillas on a plate. Spread a layer of refried beans over each tortilla. Next, spoon a tablespoon or two of quinoa on each tortilla. Add a layer of the sauteed tomatoes. Squeeze a fresh lime wedge over each. Add a dash of salt.
  • You can add the lettuce, queso fresco, and/or sour cream if you'd like.
  • Delicious, and good for you as well.
