red onion, diced
jalapeno pepper, diced
quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups
low-sodium chicken broth
mango, peeled and diced
avocado - peeled, pitted, and diced
1 1/2 tablespoons
chopped fresh cilantro
This recipe was amazing. I did it without the avocado, and it was still unbelievably delicious. I'm going for round two today and adding a second jalapeno because I love spicy food. The first time round you could barely notice it.
I was most disappointed with this recipe Where was the flavour
This is the best quinoa I've made to date - absolutely flavorful. I made a few modifications though. I excluded the avocado and corn altogether and replaced the mango with pineapple. Additionally, I added fresh, chopped tomatoes and scallions. I cooked the pineapple with the quinoa to provide some sweetness to balance the spice. I added the tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and lime juice at the end after the quinoa was done cooking but still hot in the skillet. The last modification involved replacing the fresh jalapeno with an extremely spicy sauce called Sun in a Bottle - I'm not sure if you can find it in the States.
This is a great dish - full of flavor and perfect for the summer grilling season. Didn't make it with corn, and didn't miss it at all. Love to eat as a side dish or as a small meal
I love the mix of flavors in this recipe. Made as submitted. YUM! thank you.
Interesting combo of flavors, but it works well. I used the whole onion, left out the corn, and put more cilantro than called for. I also used a 50/50 mixture of regular and red quinoa, which made it more visually interesting. I couldn't really taste the jalapeno, and I even used the seeds.
Great recipe!!! Family loved it!!! The only thing I added was black beans, but it is awesome on his own!!!!
This is NOW my favorite quinoa recipe! In addition to the lime juice, I grated the zest of the lime and used it also. Gives it an extra "limey" flavor, which I really like.
I also toasted some pine nuts and added them which added another dimension on flavor and texture.
If I had any criticism for this recipe, I think it should be doubled. So easy to eat this!
