When I first considered what food to choose for “Q”, the only thing that came to mind at first was “Quail”…. hmm….
Never in my life have I woken up and thought, “Hm, I think I’ll make quail for dinner today.”
Think about your last trip to the supermarket. Did you see quail in the butcher case? Did you even think to look? I didn’t.
That is why, Q is NOT for Quail.
Q is for QUINOA!!!
Looking for something filling, delicious, and good for you? Look no further!
I discovered this recipe during my second pregnancy and have been making it ever since. If I’m making the recipe for just me (which is often the case), I will make a recipe for four and just add the eggs when ever I’m in the mood for eggs throughout the week. Making it for more than one person is simple too, AND, of course, it’s budget-friendly!
The hot sauce is optional but I like a little kick now and again with my eggs 🙂
SHOPPING LIST: 1 red onion, 1 red bell pepper, 1 can black beans (low-sodium, if possible), 8 eggs, 1/3 cup pepper jack cheese (or cheddar if you don’t like it spicy), 1 large tomato (or two small ones), 1 small avocado, tortillas (recipe calls for 10-inch, burrito size)
Stapes to be sure you have: Canola oil, Chili flakes, Cooking Spray, Salt & Pepper
Some optional items: sour cream, salsa, hot sauce
