Quinoa and Black Bean Burritos

a plate of Two Quinoa and Black Bean Burritos with chopped orange and yellow bell peppers on flour tortillas

Quinoa and black beans are excellent sources of protein and they taste great - it's a win-win!

The burritos come together quickly!

I cooked the quinoa ahead of time, but it only takes 10-15 minutes to cook anyway.  I combined the cooked quinoa with onions, orange and red peppers, garlic, spices and of course, a can of drained and rinsed black beans, and served it with tortillas.

They were delicious!  I made up a quick batch of peach salsa and topped the Quinoa and Black Bean Burritos with a generous scoop.
