Quinoa salad with cooked quinoa, corn, red bell pepper, tomato and cilantro, dressed with a mixture of olive oil, sea salt, lemon and lime.

Or make a black bean "hummus" (black beans, sauteed red onion and garlic, cilantro, maybe some sun-dried tomatoes, etc.) and serve it on homemade baked tortilla chips. Just buy some corn tortillas, cut them into triangles, spray lightly with cooking spray and bake until crispy.

I need some ideas for our bi-monthly carry-in at work. Its next week with a theme of "Mexican"
I need something easy, portable and does not need to hot, as all we have is1 tiny microwave.
I thought of desssert, but flan looks to hard to make and fried ice cream isn`t practical....Also thought of brownies with chili powder, but I couldn`t find a recipe and it does sound kinda scary to try for the first time for a work time carry-in.
