Quinoa Chili

This is our first experience cooking with quinoa and I think we’ve finally jumped on the quinoa superfood wagon. We had some quinoa tacos at Stephanie’s house a few weeks ago – they were delicious! So we substituted in quinoa for turkey in our turkey chili recipe, to make some delicious quinoa chili.
