Quinoa Bean Tacos

I loved the idea of using quinoa in tacos, and this is what has evolved as a favorite variation around here. Feel free to adjust toppings to your favorites. This also works with soft tacos (the 6" size), but the extra texture provided by a crunchy shell with the soft filling is a nice touch.
