The cardiologist said I need to eat better, but I loves me some chili so I tried this. I left out the corn and cooked the quinoa in sodium free beef broth. I like it quite bold so I upped the seasonings substantially, used low sodium salt and put in some of my secret chili ingredient (cocoa powder) and if it didn't taste almost as good as . I also toasted the quinoa to bring out the nuttiness. I did add a little water several times to keep it from getting too thick. I don't know if that was omitted from the original recipe or because I added so much more dry seasoning. Also, to cut sodium I puréed 6 Roma tomatoes in place of crushed tomatoes. Anyway, I'm gonna take some to my cardiologist in lieu of my copay next time!
