Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This Mexican Quinoa is perfect for football Sundays! Easy to make all in one dish and much healthier than many other "dip" options, Mexican quinoa is loaded with 8g of fiber per serving thanks to all the veggies and beans, and it also contains 12g of protein per serving from the beans and quinoa. You can eat this as is, over veggies, over grilled protein or as a dip, enjoy!
