Zesty Quinoa Avocado Boats :]

These wonderful boats of joy feel so healthy and delicious going down! I will definitely be making many versions of them. It is so easy to substitute, add or remove any ingredient and it will always be delicious :D

-1/2 cup of cooked quinoa (cooled. I like to have a cup of cooked quinoa in the fridge most days)
-1/2 cup of corn (drained)
-1/2 can of black beans (rinsed)
-1/4 cup minced cilantro
-1/2 cup chopped red onion
-1/2 cup chopped green or red bell pepper
-1/2 cup cheese of your choice
-1.5 Tbsp taco seasoning 
-1 tsp garlic powder
-2 avocados

-To cook quinoa, for every cup of dry quinoa add two cups of water. Make sure you rinse quinoa in cold water before you cook it. Bring the quinoa and the water to a boil and then set to simmer for 15 minutes so it absorbs the water completely. For this recipe you'll want to stick it in the fridge until it cools down before mixing with the other ingredients. 
-Prep all vegetables and throw together into a bowl. Then add the cheese.
-Mix them with the taco seasoning and the garlic powder. 
-Add cooled quinoa to the mixture. (You may want to add more of the spices after)

-Cut avocados in half and hollow out a little bit to make room for the filling. Peel the skin off and then stuff overflowing with the quinoa mixture. 
-I like to serve the boats with salsa and lime chips :]
