I use organic whenever I can.
Start by making your quinoa ahead of time and cool it in the refrigerator.

Then chop the jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes, peppers and avocados.

Stir gently after you add the avocados.
You want them to stay intact, not get all mushy.

Recipe Notes

Can be eaten with chips, as a side dish, or as a topping for grilled chicken or fish.


Oh! And also, I made an edit to my Gluten Free Biscuits in case any of you printed that out already.
It’s a small one but still wanted to let you know. (I mistakenly put 30 minutes, instead of 30 seconds for “rise” time)
So go by and print it out again! :)

  1. this sounds really good except for the quinoa, i haven’t tried it yet because i don’t know what it is lol xx

    1. Oh it is! It really is. I’m even making it to bring to a cookout this weekend. :)
      You can also make this without the quinoa too. It’s good both ways. But I like the quinoa in it!
      Try the quinoa…just treat it the same as rice. Add butter, seasonings etc.
      I love to make it as a side dish sometimes with a bit of black pepper, salt and Parmesan cheese. (sometimes other seasonings too)
      Hope you have a great weekend Chris! :)

  2. Nancy, this sounds so good! i can’t wait to try it! I have just recently learned to eat quinoa and I fell in love with it! My daughter really loves it, too, so this will be a great dish to try.

    Thank you for sharing it! xo :)

    1. Thanks Karen! Oh I will bet you really like this then! We do! I love anything with avocados anyway! ;)
      Hope you have a great holiday weekend!!

  3. One of my favorite things to do on a summer afternoon when we’re busy doing projects in the yard is to stop for a cold glass of apple cider and munch on some salsa & chips. Pinned this delicious recipe and definitely making it soon!
