Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Toppings; sour cream, ELKI salsa, cheese, fresh cilantro, diced tomato, olives, green onions, diced radishes, lettuce.
Add quinoa and water to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Cover quinoa and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, orange & red peppers and jalapeño. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in the corn and beans., lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and cilantro. Stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until heated through, about 3-4 minutes.
Grill the tortillas, I throw mine on our gas burner to grill, or you can heat how you like. Pile the quinoa on warmed tortilla and serve with assorted toppings of choice.
