I made this last night for dinner and really enjoyed it. It's very similar to a Mexican rice dish that I made, but was better because quinoa is better for you and more filling than rice. I basically followed the exact recipe, using 2c of quinoa and 3c of broth, rather than the stated amounts. Otherwise I kept everything the same, including only using one can of tomatoes with chilies because I felt that there was already too much liquid in the pot, and it worked out just fine. It took a little longer to cook than 15-20min, but I assume that's because I used more quinoa and broth. This is not something that you want to let sit, make sure to give it a stir every few minutes so it doesn't stick to the bottom of your pan. I served this as a side dish with a ground turkey and veg tostada. For an extra treat, top the quinoa with cilantro, a sprinkle of cheese, and some sour cream. Yum!
