  • Place 2 cups water and quinoa in a large saucepan, then bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
  • In a frying pan or pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high. Add the onion, and fry until slightly softened - about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and cook ion a higher temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Add the chili powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper. Continue to sauté until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the red beans and the tomato paste and cook 1 additional minute. Add the sour hop or Greek yogurt, stir well, and remove from the heat.
  • In a large baking pan put the cooked quinoa and spread it evenly over the whole bottom of the pan. Add the mixture that you already cooked over the quinoa. Stir with a spoon and make sure that the casserole is evened out (even the surface with a spoon).
  • Add the grated mozzarella on the top and bake for 15 minutes on 190 degrees, until the cheese is melted and goldish. Decorate with fresh parsley and pieces of avocado.
