{Clean Eating} Mexican Quinoa Bowl

Today, I'm sharing one of our favorite new dinners. This meal takes about 25 minutes to make. It's one of the meals I will throw together when I am running late getting dinner started or am looking for a quick and healthy meal. It also makes a perfect lunch. Hubs adds chicken to his, I personally think this is filling just the way it is. Enjoy! 


Ingredients: 
1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa 
1 can of black beans
1 can of diced tomatoes (or a cup of fresh quartered)
1 can of corn or a cup of frozen
1 avocado, diced 
1 lime 

Directions: 
Cook quinoa according to the package directions
Once it's finished add it to a large skillet (turned to low heat)
Drain the black beans and corn 
Add them to the skillet, along with the tomatoes (undrained)
Mix ingredients and leave on the stove until everything is heated through. 
Once it's heated, add the juice of a freshly squeezed lime and the diced avocado
You can also add cilantro if your would like
