My very first post - yay! I'm so excited to share one of my favorite concoctions. This is a well-balanced, colorful, flavorful meal that is easy to eat as an entree or an appetizer. The great thing about this recipe is you can customize it to your liking - add some salsa or pico de gallo, throw in some cheese, jalapenos, lime juice... get creative! In my video, I show you the basics.
Here are my ingredients:
1 cup quinoa - made with 1 cup water and 1 cup chicken broth
Rotisserie chicken breast (sliced)
1 can black beans - rinsed and drained
3/4 cup frozen roasted corn
1/4 cup green onions
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup diced onions/garlic/shallots (Trader Joe's sells them as a medley)
3/4 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1 avocado (cubed)
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
Iceberg lettuce - for wrap
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon - zest and juice
A couple shakes of cumin
1/2 tbsp agave nectar
Salt and pepper to taste
Serves 4-6 - or make the whole batch and save it to eat through the week.
Remember, this is your creation, so if you like it with more or less of any of the above ingredients, play around with it until it is perfect for you! Enjoy!
