Southwest Mango, Black Bean, and Quinoa Bowls take grain bowls to another level with all your favorites - avocado, red peppers, quinoa, black beans, mango, and a delicious cilantro lime dressing.

Every week I make some kind of big salad packed with grains and veggies to have in the house for lunches and sometimes a quick dinner if we need it. Usually this salad ends up being a mishmash of whatever I have in the fridge, but this week I was craving mango and built this simple quinoa bowl around my favorite mango salsa recipe. It contains all the typical salsa ingredients - mango, lime juice, cilantro, red onion, and jalapeno. And I threw in some red peppers, avocado, and black beans to round out the meal. It's delicious, plus it can be made in advance and keeps really well in the fridge making them perfect for meal prep.
