Roasted Corn Salsa:


  1. Cook the red quinoa according to the package instructions. Stir in the lime zest and juice, a pinch of cilantro and a pinch of salt. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a grill for cooking at medium heat.
  3. Drizzle the chicken breasts with the olive oil and sprinkle all over with the taco seasoning and a pinch of salt. Grill until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Set aside to rest.
  4. Build the bowls by splitting the quinoa between two bowls. Slice the chicken breasts and place around the edges of the bowls. Continuing around the outside of each bowl, add the Roasted Corn Salsa and sliced avocado. Crumble the queso fresco on top and add a dollop of sour cream. Garnish with the remaining cilantro, lime wedges and a drizzle of hot sauce.
