Chili Con Quinoa

served with Creamy Cilantro Cabbage Slaw and Elote (Corn) Salsa

We could call our take on the Tex-Mex chili con carne “chili sin carne,” but we would rather think of what this chili has than what it is missing. Ours is a hearty tomato-based stew loaded with vegetables and a combination of beans, including kidney beans and black-eyed peas, and red quinoa to give it heft and depth. To the side is a crunchy cabbage and tomato slaw tossed in a creamy cilantro dressing and an elote salsa made with corn, red bell pepper, and jalapeňo in a caramelized garlic sauce.

Before preparing your meal we recommend reading the instructions thoroughly and gathering the kitchen supplies you will need. We also suggest washing and drying all vegetables and herbs.

  1. Stir the elote sauce into the elote (corn) salsa mix. Set aside.
  2. Finely chop the cilantro leaves and tender stems. (Alternatively, the cilantro can be left as whole leaves.) Set to the side.
  3. Slice the cabbage as thinly as possible and the tomatoes in half. Put in a bowl. Add the cilantro dressing and half of the cilantro, tossing to evenly distribute.
  4. Warm the chili con quinoa in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently until hot, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cilantro over the top.
  5. Serve the chili con quinoa with the creamy cilantro cabbage slaw and the elote salsa.
