Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa, black beans, corn, tomato, red onion and pickled jalapeño.
  3. Slice corn tortillas into thin strips.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil and add tortilla strips.
  5. Spray again.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minute, until crispy. (Check often to make sure the tortillas don't burn - I was using homemade tortillas and they took closer to 15 minutes. I'm guessing store bought may not take as long.)
  8. Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, combine lime juice, chipotle Chile, garlic, cilantro, olive oil, honey or agave nectar, cumin and sea salt. Process until mixture is smooth.
  9. Toss desired amount of dressing with the quinoa mixture.
  10. Plate quinoa and top with avocado and tortilla strips. (If making ahead, wait to put avocado and tortilla strips on at the last minute. Store leftover tortilla strips in an airtight bag, and return to oven to crisp if desired prior to serving.)
Recipe Notes

Serve and Enjoy with your family.
