Happy Friday! We've survived yet another week. Today I am sharing a healthy and delicious recipe with you that I made this past weekend. We woke up to a cloudy and downright gloomy Sunday, so I decided to finally give this Quinoa Chili recipe a try. I've had it pinned for a long time but never got around to making it until now. Let me just say that I am so glad I did. Even my husband liked it and he is not a huge fan of vegetarian dishes (husband 0 - wife 1). This would be the perfect dish to make and freeze for when baby arrives too!
The original recipe is by Chung-Ah from www.damndelicious.net. I am definitely going to attempt making some of her other recipes, she has so many to choose from! The only ingredient I left out when making this chili was the juice of one lime. I did a taste test and liked it just as is, but I can see how the lime juice could enhance the flavor to the chili even more. I may try adding it next time just to taste the difference. I topped mine with low-fat mozzarella cheese and added some fresh avocado (not pictured) and it was so good and comforting.
I hope you give this recipe a try as it is so quick and easy to make. You may already have all the ingredients in your pantry/fringe, so happy cooking! If you have any quinoa recipes that you would like to share, please feel free to post them in the comment section below. I am always looking for good and healthy quinoa recipes.
