Taco Quinoa Skillet Meal (Meat Free!)


This is made all in one skillet, ONE PAN!!! Seriously, this made my night SOOO much easier. Mix, simmer, top, serve! Whew! And… gotta say, serve this with chips, and it was really filling! YUM! So, easy, filling, tasty, goes well with chips… winner!


1 cup organic white quinoa (Rinse well, just as you would rice!!!)
1 TB olive oil
1 can black beans (also rinse!)
1 clove garlic – minced
1 cup low sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
1/2 cup Pace Salsa (Med.)
1/2 cup salsa verde (I used Trader Joes)
1/4 onion diced
dash cayenne pepper
1 tsp chili powder
3 tsp. ground cumin (orig. recipe called for 1/2 tsp… I was putting it in, and a BUNCH fell in… oops! Turned out great though!)
1 cup frozen corn
Zest and Juice of 1 lime
1 avocado (sliced and diced)
2 TB cilantro chopped
salt and pepper to taste

OPTIONAL: I topped mine with a bit of greek yogurt and shredded cheese… just to add a bit of “protein”. 🙂



  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in quinoa, chicken broth, beans, salsas, corn, chili powder and seasonings; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until quinoa is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove from  heat when quinoa is close to being clear… no longer specks of white.
  • Stir in avocado, lime juice and cilantro.
  • Serve immediately

So easy, and delicious! We will be having this one again!!

And, for the quote of the day:


Proverbs 14;15
