Quinoa's great! I add it to bread stuffing to make it healthier. I really enjoyed this recipe as a hot side vegetable. The toasted pepitas really took it over the top. Even better was eating it the next day, cold like a salad. I mixed in some left over chicken fajita and a dollop of creamy poppy seed salad dressing. It would probably be good with Ranch Dressing, too. I enjoyed the crunch of the chopped iceberg lettuce and bite-sized pieces of chicken, caramelized onions and peppers. I'd serve it hot too, minus the lettuce.
Another way I might use this recipe is to stuff it in a chili with a chunk of Monterey Jack cheese...Chili Rellenos style.
Thanks for this very versatile recipe.
