Often considered a complete protein, quinoa is a vegetarian protein source. Quinoa is rising in popularity due to its nutritional value and versatility in recipes. According to one source quinoa is loaded with fiber, calcium, phosphorus, and iron. Another appealing aspect to many healthy conscious food consumers is the gluten free component.
The combination of low fat cheese, taco seasoning, yogurt, and quinoa provide a sweet yet authentic flavoring.
My favorite meal pairing for taquitos is a healthy soup (like pozole soup) or salad. They are also a great option to serve as an appetizer or finger food at your next party.
