One Pan Mexican Quinoa

Stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest and it seems to be a recipe from Cook like a Champion, Really easy, one pot recipe and quite nice on a rainy night.
Ingredients :
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 jalapenos minced
1 cup quinoa
1 cup vegetable broth
1(15 ounce) can of black beans, drained and well rinsed
1 (14.5 oz) can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 cup of corn kernels
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 avocado halved, seeded, peeled and diced
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
and I added one diced bell pepper (any colour you choose)

Instructions :
Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add garlic jalapeno and cook stirring until fragrant ( about one minute)
Stir in everything -bring to a boil , reduce heat and cover until quinoa is cooked through. About 20 minutes
Add lime juice and avocado at the end, and serve straight away.
It's really good and super easy and quick to make.
