Crockpot Mexican Quinoa

This recipe is seriously one of our favorites. We make at least a few times a month. It’s satisfying, cheap, and nutritious! You can’t beat that! And an added plus it’s so quick to make! I mean, seriously 15 minutes, tops. Awesome, right??
Look how beautiful it is. Shout out to my husband who made dinner while I was at work. Seee?? It’s so easy that your husbands can make it. P.S. That wasn’t a dis on all husbands out there… Mine is a WAY better cook than me.


One of the best things about this recipe is that it is SO adaptable! If you’re feeling meat, toss in some frozen chicken breasts (allow more cooking time) or if you want more beans or different spices, then toss ’em in!
