Quinoa Taco Bowls

Now that I am engaged, and have to start thinking about dress shopping.  My mom and I have begun to try and start doing healthy dinners.  My brother's neighbor posts the most delicious and healthy recipes, and I have been saving them for a while.  I love Mexican food, so any twist on Mexican is good for me.  This was absolutely delicious, and super filling. I did make some adjustments to the original recipe.
