In a small sauce pan, add water and quinoa and cook according to package directions.
Preheat oven to 350° F and grease a baking dish with butter. (I used a 12 inch oval baker)
While the quinoa is cooking, you can prepare the rest of the ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, heavy cream and cottage cheese until well combined.
Stir in the green chiles, hot sauce, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, 1 cup of the cheese and the cooked quinoa. Pour into the baking dish.
Top with the rest of the cheese, place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until cheese begins to brown.
