*One package pre-rinsed quinoa
*Jalepeno slices with juice
*One jar pasta sauce
*Chile powder to taste
*Water as desired

Place all ingredients into pot and mix. Place on stove and cook on high until the white circular germ is visible around the edge of the quinoa seeds. Add water while cooking to maintain desired chile thickness.

This is one of my favorite winter recipes! It is a fabulously hearty meal loaded with protein and healthy carbs. For an even healthier option (as opposed to my quick and lazy option), switch out the pasta sauce with two cans of tomato paste or whole tomatoes.
