This is based on an entree my mother used to make when I was growing up. She called her version Spanish Rice. I decided to switch to quinoa to take advantage of what I consider a better grain for type O, making it Spanish Quinoa.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A Non Secretor (3 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (3 beneficials)
  • Type O (5 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (6 beneficials)

  • Entree

  • 1 pound ground meat. (I use beef or buffalo, but assume that chicken or turkey would work too)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil (I use a lot)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-2 red and/or green peppers, chopped (I normally use one red, which is a type O beneficial and one green for color)
  • 1 carrot, sliced thin (optional for color)
  • 1-15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1-15 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup rice or quinoa
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder, rounded

How to make it:
  1. Start the rice or quinoa cooking. I use a rice cooker for both.
  2. Chop the onion and peppers, and slice the carrot.
  3. Brown meat in large covered skillet on medium heat.
  4. Drain liquid from the skillet.
  5. Add the olive oil, chopped onions and peppers to the skillet and stir to distribute the oil.
  6. Cover and let cook until the onions look cooked.
  7. Add the 2 cans of tomatoes.
  8. Add the chili powder.
  9. When vegetables are cooked to your liking add the rice or quinoa to the skillet and stir.
  10. Serve.
