Ingredients

Instructions

  • Season the quinoa with salt & pepper. Stir in 2-3 (Depending on hot spicy you like it) Tbsp hot sauce.
  • Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop it out of the shell.
  • Place 1 half of the avocado flat side down into the bottom of a one cup measuring cup. Top with quinoa, lightly pressing down as you fill it all the way to the top. Level it off so it's even.
  • Turn the cup upside down on a small plate and lightly tap the sides to help the stack easily slide out.
  • Add 1/4 cup cilantro lime bean salad to the center of each avocado. Sprinkle hot sauce over each stack and sprinkle cilantro leaves on top.
