I decided to make this just from what I had in my pantry, so that said... it differs a bit from the original, but turned out really, really good! I also cooked my quinoa in vegetable broth rather than water, for extra flavor. I added 1/2 t smoked paprika to the spices. I cut back the chili powder & cumin to approx. 1/2 T each, as it seemed like it would be too much. I used the diced tomatoes that have green chilies in them and just 14 oz (all I had on hand). I supplemented the rest of the tomato with about 16 oz of vegetable (V8) juice. I used 1 can kidney and 1 can black beans. I had no green bell pepper, so only used red. Had no zucchini on hand, so left it out. Had no jalapeno or peppers in adobe sauce on hand, but did have a jar of medium heat salsa verde, so put in about 1/2 cup of that to get some spice. We topped ours with sour cream and cheddar cheese... Considering I did this completely with what I had on hand, it turned out great and the recipe gave me the inspiration to make a great dish!
