Tropical Quinoa and Black Beans

The dramatically colorful dish is flavored with a variety of seasonings for a taste of the tropics. A splash of fresh lime juice when ready to serve brightens the flavors even more. If you prefer extra heat, add a minced jalapeno or serrano chile in addition to or in place of the cayenne.
