Today we make a delicious meal prep friendly recipe that features a new way to prep quinoa with Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Bone Broth!
For this one we’re gonna start by cooking our quinoa so throw in 1 1/2 cups of quinoa into a pot with 3 cups of some Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Bone Broth. Now most people cook quinoa with water but cooking it with a broth will not only make it taste a world better…it also adds more protein to the recipe (especially since this broth has 9 grams per serving). Bring that to a boil then cover and reduce your heat to a simmer until all of your broth is absorbed which should take around 15-20 minutes.
After your quinoa is prepped take out a bowl, add your quinoa into it, 1 can of drained & rinsed black beans, 1 can of drain & rinsed pinto beans, some lime, 12 ounces of a protein (cooked ground beef, turkey, chicken, tofu, shrimp, tuna, etc), 1 cup of cooked corn, 1 diced avocado, 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, and a little salt & pepper. Mix all of those ingredients together and portion it out!
I should also note if you haven’t figured it out already that Pacific Foods is sponsoring this post and we have a few other surprises coming at you in the future so get ready!!!
