When I get a craving for Mexican food, I try to think of grains over carbs. Trust me, I am a carb feign; I would eat them all day and night if I could. Nature’s Earthly Choice Organic Quinoa, 32 Ounce“>Quinoa gives you the carb satisfaction factor and the Goya Small Red Beans 15.5 oz“>red kidney beans, onions, and peppers with salsa adds to the flavor factor. Bringin’ back all the flavor with black, white, and red tri-color quinoa blend.
It’s an easy recipe that only has a few essential ingredients. You’ll be getting your grains and vitamins. Did you know onions are high in Vitamin C, B6, Calcium, and Fiber? Get out of here. Keep slicing. Plus, the garlic will keep those unwanted strangers away and boost your immune system while it’s at it.
