Chipotle inspired Quinoa

Here's one more awesome quinoa recipe! Then I'll cool off the quinoa. For a little :) This one was inspired by Chipotle. I love Chipotle bowls and wanted to create a healthier, lower calorie version. This I swear tastes just as good as the real thing!
What you need:
Qunioa (1 cup qunioa to 2 cups water, simmer in a pot until all the water is absorbed)
Red kidney beans (drain beans from a can and rinse with water. They can also be sauteed with olive oil and red and green peppers)
Parmesean cheese
Cook quinoa (20 minutes)
Cook kidney beans (and sauteed vegetables)
Prepare your bowl- add quinoa base, top with beans/vegetables, add parmesean cheese (it will melt on top!)
Dallop of guacomole
One of my favorite things about Chipotle is the Chipotle Tabasco sauce. I haven't been able to find it at any grocery stores yet, so I definitely need to buy a bottle (or two) straight from the Tabasco source!

Have a great weekend!
