Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion, jalapeno pepper, and salt; cook and stir until onion is tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Add quinoa and cook until slightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until broth is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Stir corn, mango, avocado, lime juice, and cilantro into quinoa mixture. Serve immediately or chill and serve cold.

This is the best quinoa I've made to date - absolutely flavorful. I made a few modifications though. I excluded the avocado and corn altogether and replaced the mango with pineapple. Additionally, I added fresh, chopped tomatoes and scallions. I cooked the pineapple with the quinoa to provide some sweetness to balance the spice. I added the tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and lime juice at the end after the quinoa was done cooking but still hot in the skillet. The last modification involved replacing the fresh jalapeno with an extremely spicy sauce called Sun in a Bottle - I'm not sure if you can find it in the States.

This recipe was amazing. I did it without the avocado, and it was still unbelievably delicious. I'm going for round two today and adding a second jalapeno because I love spicy food. The first time round you could barely notice it.

This is a great dish - full of flavor and perfect for the summer grilling season. Didn't make it with corn, and didn't miss it at all. Love to eat as a side dish or as a small meal
