  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add corn and black beans and cook until corn is tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Add quinoa and cumin and stir to combine. Cook until quinoa is hot and begins to get a little crunchy, stirring constantly, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in salsa and cook until everything is combined and quinoa begins to dry out a little more, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for 5 - 10 minutes, then fluff with a fork and serve.
  • Garnish with cilantro is optional.
