  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained

  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water and drain well.

  7. Fluff the quinoa with a fork and garnish with fresh cilantro.

  8. Serve with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over the dish.
