Crock Pot Vegetarian Enchilada Bake with Quinoa

Hello friends!

My goal again this year is to get one new post up a month and so far so good (barely). If you are looking for a gourmet dinner, this is not it. This is quite good though, I assure you. And it’s slightly better for you than traditional enchiladas because it’s made with quinoa and not tortillas. Yay, protein! It’s also easy and low stress to prep, which is always a plus!

Review: Two thumbs up from both Marie and me! It’s got a little kick from the fire roasted tomatoes, but I would be fine with a little more. I love spicy though. Made enough for a couple leftover lunches.

    I super LOVE this one! I make it a lot. It is not a pretty meal by any stretch, and the leftovers look questionable but it tastes quite good and it is easy to add veggies to or put different toppings on. Yum!
