It’s got a great texture and can be flavored in so many different ways. Today I wanted to share with you my first recipe I have made with quinoa, which resulted in this amazingly easy One Pan Mexican Quinoa Recipe! This recipe has a great flavor, a spicy kick, and the best part is that it’s pretty good for you! Let’s check out how to make it shall we?

How easy was that right!? This is an awesome meal by itself, but you could also add some chicken breast to it as well. One thing I love about quinoa is that is reheats really well. So I made about 8 servings of it, and then I separated it into different containers for my lunches throughout the week! So how is that for meal planning!? Ha!
