Quinoa, Black Bean, and Corn Tacos

Awhile ago, I came across this recipe “Quinoa, Black Bean, and Corn Tacos” when I stumbled on a new website: http://www.cookingclassy.com/2013/04/quinoa-black-bean-and-corn-tacos/

I really wanted to make to make it, I would even add it to my weekly meal planning, and then never would get around to actually making it. But this time when I added it to my plan, I actually made.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
1 (14.5) oz can diced tomatoes with green chilis, undrained
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 – 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

Serve with:
corn or wheat tortillas
chopped lettuce
Monterey Jack, cheddar or cottage cheese
diced avocados
diced tomatoes
hot sauce

This recipe gets a 3 out 5. Why?

Well, as good as it was and as easy as it was to make…and as filling as it was….

We had to much left over that some of it went to waste. I hate wasting food.

Now there are only 2 of us in this household, which explains the amount we had leftover, but I still don’t see myself making this more than once a year.

This recipe was great though. Next time I’ll use spicy salsa to go on top because I love spicy.

That’s all I got!
