You would not expect it, but the combination of black beans, feta, quinoa and the Mexican inspired spices works really well in this recipe.  This is a perfect quick weeknight dinner that you’re family will love as much as mine, and even better, you probably have all the ingredients already on hand!

I knew these would be good because all the ingredients are good! I just had a hard time keeping them together. The recipe didn't say to mash the beans, but I think I'll try that next time and maybe it'll work. Still turned out to be a great side dish though!
