Southwest Quinoa Salad

with chips, in a wrap or as a side either way it is yummy and easy to put together.

1 cup quinoa
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup diced red pepper (I use yellow and orange)
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup fresh cilantro (I used a whole bunch)
1 can Rotel drained or (a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of green chilies)
1 can pink beans drained or whatever you prefer

3/4 cup mayo
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper

Cook quinoa according to package and let cool a bit.  Add frozen corn and next 5 ingredients, toss well.

Combine mayonnaise and remaining ingredients stirring well.  Pour mayo mixture over quinoa toss well and chill.

Have a Wonderful Day, Candice
