Choose your heating method
Our favorite method for this dish is to microwave the quinoa mixture while heating the tortillas in the oven.
- Conventional oven | 20–25 minutes
Heat the oven to 425°F.
Quinoa mixture: Remove the plastic from the tray and add the tomatoes. Cover the tray with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until heated through.
Tortillas: On a sheet pan, arrange 6 tortillas side by side. Reserve the rest of the tortillas for another use. Bake for 1 minute, turn the tortillas over, and bake for 1 to 3 minutes more, or until just pliable and warmed through.
- Microwave oven | 6–8 minutes
Quinoa mixture: Remove the plastic from the tray and add the tomatoes. Place a damp paper towel over the top of the tray and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir, re-cover, and microwave for 3 to 5 minutes more, or until heated through.
Tortillas: Arrange 6 tortillas, slightly overlapping, on a plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Reserve the rest of the tortillas for another use. Microwave for 20 to 30 seconds, or until just pliable and warmed through.
While the quinoa mixture and tortillas are heating, cut the lime into wedges. In a medium bowl, stir together the cabbage slaw and apple cider vinegar.
Season the quinoa–black bean mixture and cabbage slaw to taste with salt and pepper. Set out the tortillas, quinoa–black bean mixture, cabbage slaw, salsa roja, guacamole, and lime wedges. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
