What You Need
2 cup quinoa, uncooked
24 ounces cooked chicken
2 cups salsa

Mix chicken, salsa and onion in with the quinoa. Divide evenly into 5 Tupperware containers.

This recipe makes 5 meals/servings.

I have been looking for new ways to use quinoa. This sounds great. If you need more fat, you could add some velveeta to make this a creamy delight.
