Hey all!

Are you ready for a mouth-watering recipe? Lately I’ve been trying to find new ways to cook with Quinoa – it’s my new favorite food. I wanted to create a spicy dish PACKED with flavor, and this my friends is it!

I created a simple and easy to follow recipe with all of the ingredients you need. So, make sure you pin this bad boy or write down what you need for your next family dinner! It was such a hit at our house – even Wyatt loved it! You can adjust the amount of chili seasoning you use – I only used half a packet but we like spicy foods in our house 🙂

The Classico Favorites sauce is a key ingredient – and there are three different varieties. We love that traditional sauce but you can always change it up with Parmesan & Romano or the Meat Sauce. You can pick them up at your local Walmart!


 Now, who’s ready for some yumminess?! I created a pinnacle image (below) so you can save the recipe for later AND a printable recipe card. Who loves ya baby? 😉
