Organic Quinoa y Frijoles Salad

This is my rendition of my Abuelitas Arroz y Frijoles. Instead of using your usual white rice and pinto’s I opted to use quinoa and black beans with a yummy lime dressing. Quinoa is actually a seed of the goosefoot plant, and is a relative of spinach. A far better choice than just about any […]

Organic Mexican Corn Chowder
