Deconstructed Quinoa Burritos


1 cup quinoa
1 - 14 oz. can of organic mixed beans (pinto, black, small kidney)
1/2-1 cup pico de gallo fresh salsa
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
hot sauce (optional)
whole wheat tortillas (optional)
organic blue corn tortilla chips (optional)


Cook quinoa according to package instructions.  Once cooked, remove quinoa from pan, scoop into a bowl and place in the refrigerator to cool.

Drain beans and salsa and mix together in a bowl, along with next four ingredients - through feta cheese.  Stir in desired amount of hot sauce, if you like it spicy!  Serve as is, or in a tortilla, and/or with tortilla chips.  I enjoyed mine as a "salad" in a bowl with a few chips on the side.  Greg ate his as a wrap in a tortilla, with a few chips on the side.  We both liked this meal very much!
