vegetarian nachos

In recipe on February 4, 2014 at 3:10 am

have you seen that commercial about superstition and quinoa burgers? now i call it “queen-o.” it’s my favorite.

this chili from damn delicious might also be my favorite. recommended by mrs. lnrb.

thoughts:

  • don’t cook the quinoa before you put it in. why bother with another step? just add one cup dry at the point that the recipe calls for two cups cooked. it’s going to cook in the chili anyway, and i didn’t want it to get too mushy. plus, it soaks up the flavor better
  • instead of water, add one bottle of beer
  • i only added one can of kidney beans and no black beans, and i had to use frozen corn because my whole foods didn’t have canned. it was fine
  • as mrs. lnrb warned me, this turns out much thicker than you usually consider chili to be (one reason i only put in half the called-for beans). while you could definitely serve it as chili, i omitted the last step where you stir in cilantro and lime juice and used it as vegetarian nacho topping instead

no picture because i was too busy watching peyton w. manning demonstrate why he’s only the second best quarterback in football. but the nachos were delicious, topped with your choice of chopped tomatoes, avocado, green onion, cilantro, sliced jalapenos, greek yogurt (instead of sour cream) and lime wedges.
