  • Stir broth and quinoa into the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until quinoa is tender.

  • Stir black beans, tomato sauce, undrained tomatoes, corn, and chili seasoning mix into the saucepan; simmer uncovered 15 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

  • Top each serving evenly with avocado, sour cream, and Cheddar cheese.

Cook's Tips:

To make chili seasoning mix: Stir together 1 tablespoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1/4 teaspoon ghost pepper powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Use as directed in recipe.

Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. If is not pre-washed, rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating.

Ghost pepper powder is typically found online or in a local specialty spice store.

Ok I made this a little differently than the recipe but it turned out great! My husband usually cooks but he s now on a lower carb diet than me. I didn t have a green pepper canned tomatoes or chili mix and didn t feel like going back out to get them. I nixed the onion due to allergies. As with another reviewer I added more chili pepper and just added the tomato sauce we use for pasta. My hubby tasted and he the fussy chef loved it! Only next time I ll have to try to remember what I did! Read More

The was a pretty good recipe but had way too little chili powder for the seasoning mix. Changed that to 1/2 cup doubled all the other spices and then it was terrific. Read More
