Quinoa Crockpot Enchiladas

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!!

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