Quinoa Chicken Enchilada Bake- DO NOT HIT BACK

IMG_8389

Good afternoon all! If I saw the words ‘Quinoa Bake’ a month ago, I most likely would have just exited and moved on, but I am TELLING YOU this is the most delicious quinoa bake I have ever had. My husband, who absolutely despises quinoa loved this recipe, so you should definitely give it a go. There are many different recipes out there for this type of bake, but I followed a recipe (thanks Betty Crocker) that I personally think is full of flavor and easy. If you are cooking for 2-4 people you are sure to have leftovers, and lots of them!

I will say this- I substituted the shredded chicken for grilled chicken that I chopped. I marinaded the chicken for two hours, then just grilled it, chopped it, and added it to the recipe above. I think it helped this recipe drastically texturally. The red enchilada sauce is probably good too, however, I put in the Hatch Green Chili enchilada sauce for a bit extra spice and tang. You can find it in a can in any grocery store- pictured below so you know what to look for 😉
