  5. Bake for 10-15 minute, until crispy
  6. (Check often to make sure the tortillas don't burn - I was using homemade tortillas and they took closer to 15 minutes
  7. I'm guessing store bought may not take as long.)Meanwhile, in a blender or food processor, combine lime juice, chipotle Chile, garlic, cilantro, olive oil, honey or agave nectar, cumin and sea salt

  9. Toss with quinoa mixture.Plate quinoa and top with avocado and tortilla strips
