One Pan Mexican Quinoa

From Phyllis So

By Damn Delicious - Simple ingredients. Elegant dishes

"With a fun Mexican twist, this dish is chockfull of so many amazing flavors,

from the tangy lime juice to the hint of spiciness from the chili powder and

jalapeno. And not only is this healthy and nutritious but it’s also unbelievably

easy to make. Simply throw everything into the skillet and that’s it. Even the

quinoa is cooked right in the pan, really letting the flavors soak in."
