Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites

Last week I made these:
But they looked like this:
I love the smell of Frank's Hot sauce when it hits warm ingredients.  It's the smell of happiness and good things to come...like Ranch.
Tilt your head sideways for this guy.  Happy Face!
I used this recipe from SoVeryBlessed.com.  The only change I made was to omit the chicken, since I was serving these along side a chicken breast.
It was an interesting result.  I cannot say that I was in love with the texture/taste of the quinoa after having been cooked.  The ingredients together before I baked them were delicious, though.  I might make these again as a sort of quinoa chicken salad, instead of baked bites.
Just thought I'd share.  They make nifty little low cal snacks.  And, more importantly, they are a good way to use up some of the quinoa that you bought in a 5 pound quantity from Costco last year!
