mango salsa black beans with quinoa

mango salsa black beans with quinoa
(2 servings)
1 15-oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup of "refrigerator"/ fresh salsa of your choice (i used chachi's mango salsa & some Mrs Renfro's Hot Habanero salsa)
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (i used 1/4 cup red, 1/4 cup regular)

1) place your black beans in a small sauce pan. add your salsa.  cook over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes.
2) meanwhile, cook your quinoa: in a small saucepan,  add 1 cup water, 1/2 cup quinoa and a dash of salt. bring to a boil. lower heat & cover. simmer for 15 minutes.  when all the water has been absorbed, fluff with a fork.
3) to serve: put quinoa in a bowl. top with black beans.  
topping ideas: tortilla chips, avocado, cheddar cheese, sour cream, etc.
