"Delicious combination of chicken chorizo with quinoa. At my table the hotter the better!!! So don't be afraid to bring the hot sauce to the table to add some extra kick! Make a simple side dish to this recipe by combining your favorite jar of salsa with a cup or two of cooked, slightly cooled corn. Enjoy! :)" — puccachuka

Amazing. The quinoa was the only good quinoa I've ever tasted. Ha! I substituted andouille sausage for the chorizo and jalapenos for the poblanos. Turned out great. Also, instead of removing sausage from pan, I sliced it first, cooked, then just added everything else in according to the instructions. I thought this was easier and added flavor to the whole dish.
Had being hearing all sorts of good things about Quinoa so last time I was at the store, I picked some up. Not knowing what to do with it, I searched allrecipes.com and found this! The dish was very good. I will make again. Followed directions but you can definitely cook much less Quinoa. I had plenty extra after eating all the peppers and sausage. Also I used Pork Chorizo because there was no Chicken Chorizo at the market I shop.
Delicious! Recipe is a great base for modifications - omitted bell peppers and it was wonderful. Also made only 2 cups quinoa (to 4 cups stock) and had leftovers. This was my first attempt at making and eating quinoa and I am hooked!
I'm giving this recipe five stars because it got me thinking in a different direction. Due to flavour preferences and what I had on hand, my dish became more of an Italian rather than Spanish inspired dish, but it was wonderful. And it got me to try quinoa (which is now a staple in my kitchen!)...
Yummy! I didn't have sausage so I used chicken, would have been better with Sausage but still turned out well. I also didn't have the hot peppers, so to add flavor I used spicy V8 instead of the last cup of chicken stock. Will make again with the correct ingredients.
This was so GOOD!! First time trying Quinoa and I loved it. I will be using it over and over again in other recipes. I did use vegetable stock because I didn't have Chicken and less quinoa because I thought it was a lot and not sure I was going to like it. I also added mushrooms chopped fine with the onions because I had some:) A lot of good flavor going on here.....
I don't make a lot of recipes twice, but this is DELIC! I tweaked it by cutting the recipe in half, and added spicy chicken sausage.
We liked this recipe a lot, however, when I make it again I'll only make half the amount of quinoa because we have tons left and not enough peppers/sausage to go with it. My boyfriend added hot sauce but I liked the flavor just the way it was.
