Preparation

In soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup of the onions and the habanero peppers (avoid breathing the fumes) and saute, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add ground turkey and stir to break up into small pieces; cook and stir frequently until turkey has all turned white on outside, about 5 minutes. Add quinoa and stir to thoroughly mix in. Add remaining ingredients and stir to mix thoroughly. Cover the pot, reduce heat to medium-low, and let cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve with remaining onion and optional cheese and sour cream as toppings.

I used chopped turkey instead of ground. And jalepenos instead of the hot peppers. Very good:)
