I like chili, a lot. I like made with meat so it has been absent from diet since I started keeping kosher. I made this a day or so ago and surprisingly, it reminded me of chili.
1 cup Red Inca quinoa
1 can Rotel(fresh chilies and tomatoes would even be better, 1/2 cup combined)
Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Prepare the quinoa as directed. Add the Rotel or chopped tomatoes and chilies. Top with the cheese. Makes about 4 servings
The texture of the quinoa makes this dish seem like chili. The quinoa also is a very good and tasty source of protein. It tastes much better than soy products. This is the first time I've used quinoa and when it was cooking, my stomach was rumbling and I kept checking the pot to see if was finished. The aromas did not disappoint. I can't wait to try white quinoa with dried cranberries.
