I decided to share with you all a fantastic and tasty recipe today.

So last Sunday, my man decides to put a little spin on regular quinoa…. 

The result?

The flavors of the cilantro, garlic, black beans, and corn all come together to give a succulent and pleasant arrest 

of the taste senses. I had to have seconds of this delicious and healthy concoction. 

Yes, it is THAT good!
