"Whether you're trying quinoa for the first time or just trying a new recipe for quinoa, this mixture of quinoa, black beans, corn, and spices will make this dish a new favorite."
"This was so fresh and so light - a really great recipe. The pacing of it is also great - sometimes I don't do all my prep before I start, and then I'm frantically trying to chop or tear while the pot bubbles away, but this was a really easy, calm recipe.
The nutritionals seem to be a bit wack - not that that's the poster's fault. This is a Weight Watchers recipe and is an 8 point meal- according to these nutritionals it would be 19 points a serving! "

MelissaQ22 6 months agoThis was awesome! I tried it for the first time for a Labor Day cookout and it was a huge hit! Even my husband, who doesn't eat black beans and won't go near quinoa, LOVED it! Like the spicy-ness of the dish as well. Omit the cayenne if you want the kids to eat it. I will definitely be making this again!

Beckycichos 7 months agoThis is so delicious!!! I uses can corn, but frozen would be better. I used this as a meal, but tomorrow I'm making it for a friend and it'll be a side dish. Super yummy!!
jackibelfonte 8 months agoI made this last weekend. Really great overall recipe. I didn't make any changes except that I only had one can of beans. I generally make the recipes as posted without reading reviews until after. This makes a lot and is very simple. Will be easy to adapt with other add-ins. Really loved this recipe! Thanks for posting!

DaniTT722 10 months agoreally good- especially with the fresh cilantro! I subbed pinto beans (didnt have black) and let them cook for a few minutes before adding the cilantro.
tfowler13 11 month agoEasy and very tasty. Nice combination with chicken quesadillas. I think I will go with freshly cooked black beans next time. Canned were a little mushy and difficult to warm up to temperature of the rest of the mix after adding them room temp.

JeannetteRoberts 1 year agoI love quinoa but my family, not so much. They all liked this and it was super easy to make. I didn't have vegetable broth so I used chicken, it was great!

mogriff1 1 year agoThis is by far the best quinoa dish I've eaten! I minced my onion in the food processor , used chicken stock and only used one can of black beans. So flavorful! Will make this often!
