Skillet Mexican Quinoa $1.27 per serving

Hi there folks,

Today I want to share a simple easy delicious recipe that I stumbled across and sort of tweak it a bit to fit my taste. I hope you will do the same or at least try this version first and then get creative!

If you switch to a veggie broth instead of the chicken broth that I used this could totally be a vegetarian dish. The quinoa provided a bunch of nutrients for your body most notably proteins and carbohydrates to help fuel your day.

So try this out and if you want to leave any feedback please do so…enjoy a full belly my friends. -Cheapstir.
