High-protein quinoa makes a great filling for tacos. It’s a fun, festive, and filling meal!
Serves: 6 (2 tacos per serving)
Combine the quinoa with 1 1/2 cups of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Sauté the onion over medium heat until translucent. Add the diced bell pepper, garlic, and optional fresh chile pepper, and sauté until all are golden, about 5 minutes.
When the quinoa is done, transfer it to the skillet and add the tomato puree, and chili powder, and cumin. Cook, stirring, until the mixture is well blended. Season with salt and pepper, remove from the heat, and cover.
Place the taco shells on a platter. Prepare the garnishes and place each in separate bowls.
Transfer the quinoa mixture to a covered serving container, or if it’s an informal family meal, leave it in the skillet. Have everyone assemble their own tacos as follows: Line each taco shell with a handful of shredded lettuce, followed by a scoop of the quinoa mixture. Garnish the top with diced tomatoes, black olives, and salsa or picante sauce. Eat out of hand with plenty of napkins, and enjoy!
