Mango, Quinoa and Black Beans

Still with the qunioa.  

Did you know that this is my third meal that I've gotten out of uno bag of quinoa.  Upon purchasing this bag of qunioa, I was pretty horrified at how much at costs.  However...it's cool now.  It's gone a long way.  In fact, we can probably get about 2 more out of it.  Probably. We'll see.  

I'm sure you'll be waiting with breath that is bated to see how it goes.  

Maybe I'll make breakfast quinoa.  Who knows.  It might get crazy up in here.

So.  This quinoa recipe was directly taken from Skinny Taste.  Get it, Gina!  It's a great recipe...perfect as a side or a snack.  The flavors are real sassy when put together.  AND it features a mango.  This was my first mango experience and I'm proud to admit that it was a positive one.
