I'm not a fan of quinoa a lot of the time, but in this dish - it's super yummy!!  You can also make it with brown rice!!
4 Servings: 1.5 Red (if use greek yogurt), 1/4 Green, 1 yellow, 1 blue


1 lb lean ground turkey
1 cup uncooked quinoa or brown rice
4 oz no salt added tomato sauce
1 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2.5 tablespoons chili powder
2.5 teaspoons cumin
garlic cloves minced
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/2 jalapeno chopped
 greek yogurt and green onion for topping optional

Prepare quinoa as directed on package.

In a skillet, brown turkey with minced garlic. As it starts to brown, add your seasonings, chopped onion, jalapeño and tomato.

Add cooked quinoa, tomato sauce and 1/3 cup of the cheddar cheese to skillet.

Stir well and transfer to a greased baking dish.

Top with remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted.

Divide into four equal servings. You can top it with greek yogurt and chopped green onion.
