I made this recipe for lunch today and it is SO good. So, if you want something easy and delicious for lunch (or dinner) this weekend, throw this together!

Recipe and photo from Eat Yourself Skinny.


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (I used a red pepper quinoa/brown rice blend)
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh corn, thawed
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded chicken, cooked (If you’re lazy like me, just buy the premade BBQ Chicken)
  • 2 Tbsp barbeque sauce of your choice
  • 1/2 avocado, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cilantro, as garnish


Cook quinoa according to package directions. In a large bowl, mix together quinoa, corn, black beans, chicken and barbeque sauce.  Fold in avocado, green onions and season with salt and pepper.  Top with a bit of cilantro and enjoy!
