It’s still hot in Houston.
I don’t want to spend two hours chopping, assembling and baking a large casserole right now, no matter how insanely delicious it may be.
But I do want to eat cheesy black bean quinoa-filled goodness, and I want you to eat it too, even if you live in a heat-ridden place like Houston (and even if you live in a place where the weather has decided to behave moderately). So get this dreamy medley of creamy black beans, smoky “roasted” bell peppers, juicy tomatoes, sweet corn and TEXTURE-HEAVEN-quinoa covered in a thin blanket of melty cheese and into your mouth STAT.This is a super easy, extremely tasty and nutrition-packed stovetop entree that you can have on the table in just over half an hour.
I’ve made this three times so far and the boyfriend rating is through the roof, as far as I’m concerned. The first time I made this, we almost ate the entire skillet ourselves. Seriously.
Hop on over to The Muffin Myth (don’t you just love that name?) for the recipe!

Oh my gosh, I’m making this for dinner tomorrow night. This is perfect, perfect, perfect. Right up my alley, and I think my husband would actually love it too!!!!! GREAT recipe!!!!
I love black bean anything! This looks absolutely delicious and I am going to try it out this weekend. Wish me luck and I hope my boyfriend enjoys it the way that I make it.
🙂 Great post and I feel inspired to try it out.
That first photo is so good! This looks like a quick and easy dish! Love it! 🙂
Tell me about it! I’m dying here in Houston!! The skillet quinoa dish looks absolutely delectable! Just my kind of meal too! Going to check it out! Love all the colors too!

I’ve been eating quinoa like there’s no tomorrow and I need a new recipe to mix it up. Heading over to check it out!
What a great skillet dish!
I know how you feel about the heat. Hong Kong is hot and steamy. Delicious tex mex dish . I love those 30 minutes or less meals.
Oof yeah one of my blogger friends was remarking how hot it is in Saipan right now–I wonder if Hong Kong and Houston are experiencing the same weather!
Mmmmmm I would love to have this in my kitchen right now. I love Mexican-inspired cuisine. It makes me want to go back to Mexico City anytime now… and Quinoa is very popular in Colombia, too! 🙂 Beautiful photos, too!
Thanks Rika! Take me to Mexico City with you! I feel like you could definitely show me all the best foodie places 🙂
