  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, adding the garlic salt.
  2. Meanwhile, cook beef and onion in large skillet over medium-high heat 7 minutes or until beef is crumbled and no longer pink, stirring occasionally; drain. Stir in undrained tomatoes, seasoning mix and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Divide quinoa evenly between 4 bowls. Spoon meat mixture evenly over quinoa. Sprinkle each serving with cheese. Top with lettuce and sour cream, if desired.

Cook's Tip

Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. Rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating, if it is not pre-washed.

Tried this recipe last night and it was awesome and so easy. Decided going forward (because hubby said "this is a repeat!") I will make my Taco Seasoning instead of buying the package, cutting down on the sodium. It was really good and easy.
