This is not my recipe. I know not who to credit .Some other lovely person came up with it but I added the lima beans.
It's a fast recipe.
Rinse 3/4 cup quinoa and simmer it in 1 and 1/2 cup of vegetable broth or water for 15-20 minutes or till all liquid is absorbed. set aside.
Chop one large onion and 3 cloves of garlic and in a large skillet or large pan saute onions and garlic in 1 T olive oil til onions are cooked 3-5 minutes.
measure 1 cup frozen corn and 1/2 cup frozen lima beans and stir in to the onions. Drain 2 cans black beans and add them to the skillet mix
Add 1 tsp. ground cumin and 1/8-1/4 tsp cayeene pepper and 1/2 tsp salt
Cook/stir mix till all ingredients are hot through.
add 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro right before serving
Makes enough filling for approx 8 large tortillas. optional toppings: salsa, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese, meat, avocado, shredded lettuce
hmmmm, perfecto ENJOY
