This has always been one of my favorites. I got this recipe from Pinterest a while ago. I'm not quite sure who posted it. I tried to look it up but there are actually a lot of similar recipes on there. The whole family likes this one! Sometimes I serve it with some tortilla chips and avocado, yum!!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED :
1 1/2-2 cups of cooked quinoa
2 Cups of water
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced

2 1/2 cups of Daiya shredded pepper jack cheese
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 baking dish.
In a large skillet heat olive oil, medium heat. Add onion garlic and jalapeño. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in the peppers and the corn. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and cilantro. Stir to combine and add salt and pepper to taste.
