Ingredients

  • 12 ounces O Organics lean grass fed ground beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

  • Heat a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat with cooking spray. Add the ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon until cooked through. Drain and discard any fat. Transfer the ground beef to a bowl.

  • Stir in the garlic, cumin, chili powder and paprika. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken broth, salsa and quinoa. Bring to a boil, reduce to a lively simmer and cook for 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is translucent.

  • Remove from the heat and stir in the spinach and cilantro until the spinach is wilted. Serve with tortilla chips.
