  • 1 cup quinoa (rinsed)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 2 cups cooked black beans (canned, rinsed and drained)
  • 3 cups red potato (about 3/4 lb, small dice)
  • 1 tbsp neutral tasting oil (avocado, olive, canola, etc.)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 1/2 cup salsa of choice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • sliced bell pepper (for serving (optional))
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (toasted)
  • 1 lime (cut into wedges, for serving)
  • corn tortillas (gluten-free, for serving)


  • In a small pot over medium-high heat, combine quinoa and broth or water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid. Continue cooking for 15-20 minutes, until the quinoa is cooked through and the liquid is absorbed. Set aside.
  • In the meantime, heat oil in a large skillet. Add diced potatoes and cook for 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are lightly browned and tender, making sure to stir so they don't burn. Once cooked through, add quinoa and black beans and stir to combine.
  • Then, add the spices and stir. Let cook an additional 3-5 minutes to get the flavors to meld together and heat up the beans.
  • To assemble, heat corn tortillas in a skillet for a few minutes to firm up.
  • Then spoon the filling into the corn tortillas, top with diced avocado, salsa, cilantro, pumpkin seeds and a squirt of fresh lime juice.
