Chili With Quinoa

14 Mar

It’s what for dinner (tonight) lol!

While cruising around AllRecipes, I found a recipe for chili using quinoa (pronounced keen-wa).  I decided that I’d make it for dinner for three reasons: I love chili, it’s cheap, and it uses quinoa.

This particular recipes includes zucchini, cilantro, and jalapeno.  I didn’t have any of it so I opted to make chili the way I normally make it (albeit I did include the corn).   Ground turkey was substituted for ground beef because I believe it is healthier. I decided that I wouldn’t add the quinoa to the pot as I didn’t want it to soak up the liquid.  I have some sort of aversion to adding noodles, rice, quinoa, etc. to the pot for that very reason.  The last thing I did was include a couple tablespoons of horseradish sauce because I like strong flavors and had it on hand.

My end result was a delicious pot of chili that is kid approved!  Yummy!  How do you incorporate healthy alternatives into food and still make it kid approved?
