15 Mexican Quinoa Recipes

I'm so excited to share this round up with you today because it features pretty much all of my favorite quinoa recipes from around the web and each one is Mexican-themed!

I've always had a love affair with Mexican, Caribbean, South and Central American cuisines. It started with my obsession with avocado and quickly took a turn into an obsession with tacos, which and since grown from there – burritos, salads, dips, casseroles, even breakfast bowls. If it's got chili powder, cumin, avocado, black beans, corn, tomatoes, cilantro or avocado involved, I'm the first in line.

And since quinoa originally hails from the mountains of South America, it tends to work exceptionally well with Latin American flavors.

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, I wanted to share some truly delicious Mexican Quinoa Recipes that you could bring with you to your celebration and serve to family and friends. We'll start with appetizers and dips, move to salads and side, then to tacos, burritos and burrito bowls and finish with…burgers.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. I think I will start on those burgers… That colourful all-in-one dish looks good too. I love less washing up!
    I know tacos are that masa harina but they would be good made with quinoa too I think. Have you been playing around with that idea yet?
    I love all this tinkering around and getting something delicious too.

  2. I love Quinoa and what a delicious collection you have here! They all look good, I don’t know where to start. 🙂 Pinned. 🙂

  3. These look great. I am really excited about a slightly less dangerous version of the refried bean dip.

  4. EVERY! SINGLE! RECIPE! looks SO good! Yes, I am yelling! Ha. My mouth is drooling. Time to click over and visit a few of these recipes! 🙂
