Dump taco seasoning on some saw dust.

Enjoy.

Bleh. Dude - that 'packet' of stuff has 47 ingredients in it! That's insane!!! It also has a ridiculous amount of sodium and is high in sugar.

No bueno.

Maybe she's referring to a Mexican quinoa salad.

For instance:
- cook quinoa
Add:
- black beans
- diced fresh tomatoes
- green onion
- chopped red pepper
- any other veggies you want (i.e. corn)
- chopped cilantro
- little olive oil
- pressed or minced garlic
- lots of fresh squeezed lime juice
- cumin
- pepper & salt to taste

Simple. I use typical Mexican foods in it:
Finely chopped jalapeno, poblano pepper, chopped grape tomatoes, red pepper, scallions, red onion, cilantro, garlic, pepitas, cilantro and a generous splashing of fresh lime juice. Some salt and pepper to taste.

Full of protein. So good for you and so delicious too.

Hmmm, didn't do black beans, but there's an idea. Or cumin but that could be added too. I didn't use olive oil though and it was still fine.

I never touch Taco seasoningóloaded with junk I can't pronounce. I make mine from scratch from fresh as possible seasonings for top pungency. Chili peppers, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and fresh chopped oregano from my herb garden. I buy fresh cilantro at farmer's market.

Here's a picture of a similar quinoa a la Mexican. Only this one has corn in it.

I also whipped up what I needed to make Mexican street corn, but had unexpected company whereby I forget I had the corn cooking.

Last night was one of our "go to" meals: linguine with white clam sauce. It's quick and easy, and it pairs nicely with some white wine.
