“Delicious combination of chicken chorizo with quinoa. At my table the hotter the better!!! So don't be afraid to bring the hot sauce to the table to add some extra kick! Make a simple side dish to this recipe by combining your favorite jar of salsa with a cup or two of cooked, slightly cooled corn. Enjoy! :)”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the diced onion and sea salt to taste; cook and stir until the onion has caramelized to a deep brown, about 15 minutes. Once caramelized, pour in 6 cups of chicken stock and the quinoa; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the sausages on all sides in the hot oil, then remove and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Return the sausage to the skillet, and continue cooking until browned on all sides and no longer pink in the center. Remove to drain on a paper towel lined plate, and keep warm.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir the sliced onion into the remaining oil in the skillet. Cook until the edges of the onions begin to turn a golden color, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Season with the paprika and cumin, then stir in the red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers, poblano chile peppers, and 1 cup of chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, then cook until the peppers soften, and the mixture reduces and thickens, 10 to 15 minutes. Return the sausage to the skillet, season to taste with salt and pepper, and continue cooking until the sausage is hot. Serve over a bed of quinoa.

Amazing. The quinoa was the only good quinoa I've ever tasted. Ha! I substituted andouille sausage for the chorizo and jalapenos for the poblanos. Turned out great. Also, instead of removing sausage from pan, I sliced it first, cooked, then just added everything else in according to the instructions. I thought this was easier and added flavor to the whole dish.

Had being hearing all sorts of good things about Quinoa so last time I was at the store, I picked some up. Not knowing what to do with it, I searched allrecipes.com and found this! The dish was very good. I will make again. Followed directions but you can definitely cook much less Quinoa. I had plenty extra after eating all the peppers and sausage. Also I used Pork Chorizo because there was no Chicken Chorizo at the market I shop.

Delicious! Recipe is a great base for modifications - omitted bell peppers and it was wonderful. Also made only 2 cups quinoa (to 4 cups stock) and had leftovers. This was my first attempt at making and eating quinoa and I am hooked!
