Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the shallot and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the peppers and truRoots Quinoa and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the Swanson Chicken broth and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the truRoots Quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed.  Stir in the parsley.

Of course, no block party would be complete without chips and dip! I’m happy that Sam’s Club now carries this Pace Organic Medium Salsa that is Certified USDA Organic. My husband loves this salsa, and I have to hide it if I’m saving it for a party so that he doesn’t make it disappear.
