Mexican quinoa

Filling tasty Mexican quinoa. If you've wanted to try or have tried quinoa and thought it was bland.. Give this a shot. Eat as a vegan meal or as a side with your meats. For a less spices heat. Clean the seeds out of the jalapenos. That's where the heat is. And make sure to wash hands after cutting the peppers. If ya have gloves then glove up. Don't want to pepper spray yourself or kids.
