Meatless Mondays: Buffalo-Style Quinoa Chili

Earlier this fall, Bob's Red Mill partnered with Food52 for a contest titled, “Your Best Quinoa Recipe.” Over 120 recipes were submitted for the contest. The two winning recipes were selected by community voting and Food52 judges. Amber of Loves Food, Loves to Eat  was the chosen winner with her Quinoa Cookies with Coconut & Chocolate Chunks. The second place recipe was this amazing Buffalo-Style Quinoa Chili from Stacy McCann of Every Little Thing. I've been saving this one because it looks like just the thing to warm your soul and I had a feeling that come November, a hearty bowl of chili would be needed around here. Bonus: it's very simple to make, you'll probably have most of the ingredients sitting in your pantry, and it's ready in just 30 minutes. That is the perfect Meatless Mondays meal in my opinion.  If you’re looking for more quinoa inspiration, the other recipes that were submitted look mouthwatering.  Buffalo-Style Quinoa Chili | Bob's Red Mill Buffalo-Style Quinoa Chili Contributed by Stacy McCann of Every Little Thing Serves 2-4
