Ingredients

  • 4 cups Swanson chicken broth
  • 2 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 red bell pepper halved & seeds removed
  • 1 green bell pepper halved & seeds removed
  • 1 purple onion halved
  • 1-2 ripened avocado peeled, core removed
  • 1/2 cup cilantro coarsely chopped
  • 1 jalapeno sliced
  • 14.5 ounce can black beans
  • 1 cup small yellow tomatoes cut in half
  • sour cream topping
  • salsa topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to high broil. Place red & green bell pepper halves face down on a baking sheet. Take the onion halves and remove half of the layers, from each half. So there should now be 4 onion mounds.
  • Place them face down on the same baking sheet. Set in oven and broil until high heat until peppers start become golden brown and have some specs of black. 
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven once the peppers look charred. Allow peppers and onion to cool for 5 minutes, while you start the quinoa.
  • Add chicken broth and uncooked quinoa to a medium sauce pan and place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. 
  • Once the broth is boiling stir the quinoa, reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer over low-heat for 15-20 minutes. Fluff with fork and remove from heat. If there is still liquid left, return lid and simmer for another 3-5 minutes. Set aside.
  • While the quinoa is baking, chop the peppers and onions. You can do this any way you choose, I chose to diced them into small-medium chunks. Set peppers and onions aside while the quinoa finishes baking.
  • Once quinoa is cooked. Prepare Quinoa Fajita Bowls.
  • Place about a cup of cooked quinoa in the bottom of the bowl, top with diced red and green bell peppers, onions, black beans, avocado, tomatoes and sour cream & salsa if desired. 
  • Finish off with a sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro. Serve immediately and enjoy!
