Turkey Taco Quinoa Skillet

A Pinterest find from spoonfulofflavor that we all loved! Serve alone or over lettuce, chips, tostadas, or tortillas! Here is the recipe with my (minor) adaptations.

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup frozen diced onion
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
4 ounce can diced green chilies
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
14.5 ounce can diced fire roasted tomatoes
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/4 cup jarred salsa
1/2 cup rinsed quinoa
1/2 cup water
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or Monterey)

Grease a large skillet with cooking spray, olive oil, or butter; heat over medium-high heat.
Add the diced onion and cook for about 2 minutes until it starts to soften.
Add the turkey and garlic, cooking until the meat is almost cooked through.
Stir in all the spices and the diced green chiles, cooking for another minute or so.
Add the black beans, corn, tomatoes, salsa, and quinoa, stirring until everything is combined.
When the mixture starts to bubble add the water and cover the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low.
Simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until the quinoa is cooked.
Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and cover with the lid cooking until the cheese is melted.
