  1. Whisk 1 cup beef broth and chili seasoning mix together in a bowl.
  2. Melt coconut oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir quinoa in hot oil until fragrant and lightly toasted, 1 minute. Pour broth-seasoning mixture, remaining 1 cup beef broth, and tomatoes into quinoa mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until quinoa has absorbed most of the liquid, 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Stir bean blend, green chilies, and corn into quinoa mixture; simmer until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.

My family really loved this. It was very easy to make, especially when you want to make something filling. We added left over hamburger meat in ours and use black beans. We don't add the chilies...

Delicious, easy, low fat option. Made just like the recipe says. Added it to our favorites list!
