Quinoa Crockpot Enchiladas

Savoring Saturday

I know I have mentioned before that I wanted to make one of my New Years resolutions to use my crock pot more- well here we are! This recipe is SO yummy because it has a lot of my favorite ingredients and some Mexican flair. It’s also a great dump and cook recipe for those days when you are on the go! I made this and had leftovers for a few days- it reheats really nicely and is healthier with the quinoa…yum!!


  • 1 cup frozen petite white corn
  • 1.5 cups uncooked Quinoa
  • 1/2 cup Salsa
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 lb Ground Turkey or Beef
  • 1 can Enchilada Sauce

  • 1 can Black beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion

That’s a lot of ingredients but it’s SO worth it! Plus it’s SO easy…
