    Took a little longer than 30 minutes but this was a great dish and I plan to make it again!

    Prep time took me longer than 7 min, and I decided to add some grilled corn and chicken to it but otherwise was super easy and tasty!

    So tasty! And I love being able to put everything in one skillet. Such easy cleanup!

    This was great! Avocado really tops it off.

    It was very good but a little bland. I would up the spices a bit next time and perhaps serve with extra lime juice. The entire family liked it very much, though, so I will definitely give it another shot

    Great! I added Vegan Sausage to it. Turned out great! Added some chips to scoop with.

    Delicious! I tweaked the recipe, adding frozen chopped peppers, frozen corn instead of jalapeño, and chili powder instead of taco seasoning. I added paprika, turmeric and garlic. Served it over tortilla chips and shredded good!!

    Good dish. May be even better if served over spinach with an avocado dressing.

    Added more jalepeños. Great flavor and a good vegan Mexican dish

    I made a few replacements: no jalapenos, used cooking spray, and carrots instead of one of the peppers. Still came out great.

    Made this last night. Turned out great...added extra taco seasoning and lime juice during the last stir. Had it for lunch today and the flavors were vibrant.

    It turned out ok, but wasn’t the greatest. Would probably be better with fresh cilantro. No one else liked it much.

    I used low sodium ingredients so it turned out a bit bland, but it was good with some salt, hot sauce and nutritional yeast.
    Anna Wachter 2 years ago
    This was really good! We added extra taco seasoning and put some broccoli in. Definitely would make it again

    Takes a lot longer to cook the quinoa than they suggest but always turns out 10/10. I add corn and alot of cumin to mine to mix it up

    So good! Easy to make. I used my own spices and cooked it for longer. A great dish!
