Fiesta Quinoa

I was craving mexican food, but we were out of rice! In fact, we were out of a lot of things. Somehow, we ended up with a delicious and healthy meal that was easy to make.

Fiesta Quinoa
1 cup quinoa (I used red quinoa, but it doesn't matter)
2 cups water
1 can black beans - drained, rinsed
1 cup frozen corn
1/4 cup of your favorite salsa
diced tomatoes
cubed avocado

Combine the quinoa and water in a pot, cover, and simmer until the water is absorbed. Add the corn, beans, and salsa. Stir until everything is hot. Top with tomatoes and avocado. Tastes great alone or with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
