Rinse the quinoa under cold water. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Stir in the quinoa, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the black beans and corn kernels. Season with cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, until heated through and slightly crispy.
Warm the corn tortillas in a skillet or in the microwave. Spoon the quinoa mixture onto the tortillas. Top with diced avocado and fresh cilantro. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
