  • Stir quinoa with the onion mixture. Pour vegetable broth into the saucepan; season with chipotle pepper powder and cayenne pepper. Bring the broth to a boil. Cover the saucepan, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Stir black beans and corn into the quinoa mixture; simmer until the beans and corn are heated through, about 5 minutes more.

Tips

Cook's Note:

Use habanero-infused oil if you have it, but any other hot pepper infusion will suffice.

This was great just needed a little oomph at the end so added a pinch of salt fresh lime juice and chopped fresh cilantro. I didn't have chile oil so heated a tsp of coconut oil and 1/4 tsp of chile flakes (smelled wonderful). This is good warm or cold. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Good recipe although I had to use substitutions because of what I had in my cupboard. Easy to do does not take long. I sub'd black beans for cannellini and olive oil with a tsp. of Sriracha chicken broth instead of vegetable. Read More
