Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On April 5, 2010 @ 5:14 pm In $5 Dinner Challenge,Beef,Dairy Free,Gluten Free,Pantry Staples,Recipes | 27 Comments

Alrighty y’all!

Tonight’s recipe comes from Marilyn! And I’ve got another similar one that I’ll share tomorrow night. This week might turn into “Skillet Dinner Week”…or it might not?!??!?

(Hint: I’ve got some great grilling recipes coming your way!)

So if it rains…and you can’t get out to the grill, stay in and make these skillet dinners instead.

Ingredients
1 lb. ground beef (could use ground turkey)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 14-oz. can diced tomatoes (with juice)
1 4-oz. can chopped chilies
1 cup quinoa
1-1/2 cup water
1-1/2 T. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin

Directions
1. Brown ground beef and onion; drain excess fat.
2. Rinse quinoa in sieve/colander.
3. Add tomatoes, chilies, quinoa, water and spices to ground beef mixture and simmer (uncovered) for about 25 minutes. (If water evaporates too quickly, cover pan for remainder of cooking time.)
4. Serve Mexican Ground Beef Quinoa Skillet.

P.S. This is totally a Pantry Staples Recipe [3] too!
