Mexican style Quinoa

For a few years, quinoa was a trend. Seemed like everyone was spinning that trend and creating some tasty dishes using quinoa. I was one of them!

Quinoa instead of rice?

Don't knock it until you try it, I always say! Like many food bloggers, I experimented with all kinds of quinoa and adapted some Mexican recipes. Enchiladas? Yes! Quinoa bowls? Yes! Quinoa in my salad? Mmmm !!

  • 1 serrano pepper left whole
  • 1/3 cup red pepper dice
  • 2 cloves of garlic slices
  • 2 tomatoes roughly chopped

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime fresh juice
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped


  • Preheat the oil on medium heat for one minute. Add the onion, serrano, bell pepper and garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • On the back burner, add 1 1/2 cup of water with crumbled broth dice. Heat to medium and cook just until the broth is dissolved. Stir as needed.

Don't hurry on the quinoa. Let it sit after removing it from the heat so it can finish cooking and become more tender.
