Zesty Shrimp and Fiesta Quinoa

I have to come up with creative ways to make quinoa because the girls are not to fond of it. They love corn so that's why I added the corn, and they ate it so success was mine!
1 cup quinoa (dry)
2 cups water
1/4 cup tomato
1/4 cup corn
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 package 26-30 count shrimp
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Chili powder
Mrs Dash garlic and herb seasoning
Seasoning are to taste but if you need to measure use about a 1/4 teaspoon of each and maybe 1/2 teaspoon of salt
In medium sauce pan bring 2 cups water, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and mrs dash to boil. Add quinoa and cook 15 minutes or until water is absorbed. Turn heat off add corn, bell pepper, tomato and green onion. Place sautee pan over medium heat. Season shrimp with cumin, chili powder, mrs dash, salt and pepper. Spray pan with cooking spray and cook shrimp 2-3 mins each side. Serve and enjoy.
