1 cup vegetable broth (I used a cup of water with a tablespoon of miso paste)
1 540-ml can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
Juice of 1 lime (I used 2 tbsp)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and jalapeno, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in quinoa, vegetable broth, beans, tomatoes, corn, chili powder and cumin; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until quinoa is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Stir in avocado, lime juice and cilantro.
I like spicy, flavourful but not hot food, so I should've removed the seeds from the jalapeno pepper. I forgot the cumin, and didn't have an avocado. But this was still delicious and I will be making it again! I served it up with a couple spoonsful of sour cream to alleviate the burning on my tongue.
