Mexican Quinoa Casserole

Ok, I won't lie. This is not the most beautiful picture I have ever taken of my food. Can you just take my word that this casserole is not only easy to make, but tastes delicious. SO delicious in fact that you will not miss that fattening Mexican food you are used to. I swear.

Pesto Quinoa Salad

Can I just say how much I LOVE quinoa. If you haven't gotten aboard the quinoa train you better hurry up. Quinoa is becoming increasingly popular due to its superfood properties. So much so, that the farmers in South America can barely afford to eat it themselves anymore. In that case, maybe we can get plant based protein somewhere else so there is more to go around. Anyway, let me get off of my soap box. This salad is amazing. I came up with the idea because I saw a recipe for pesto pasta salad and I thought, " Well, why can't I just make the same flavors, but with quinoa. And thus, pesto quinoa salad was born.
