Wash, slice and bake the potatoes as shown at 375F for 50 minutes to an hour until soft and sweet. While the potatoes are baking, make the salsa by processing all the ingredients in a food processor. Make the cashew queso by blending all the ingredients. Cook the quinoa with the salsa and spices for 10 minutes until the quinoa absorbs all the flavors. Then add the beans and lime juice and serve. This can be a meal on its own.
