Meal Prep

Enchilada​ Quinoa Bake

I love enchiladas… oh, that warm cheesy goodness… the red enchilada sauce…. yum!  My mouth is watering just thinking about!

This one I totally cheated on though… let me tell you how!

Ingredients:

  • 2 10 oz bags of Simple Truth Organic White Quinoa -Frozen, already cooked!!
  • 2 cans of Organic Black Beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 2 cans of red enchilada sauce
  • 1 can of diced green chilis
  • 1 bag of Steamfresh sweet corn
  • 1 tbsp of Wildtree Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 Yellow bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp of fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 2 cups Mexican blend finely shredded cheese

To prepare,

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

So here’s my cheat… by using the pre-cooked frozen quinoa, I saved 20 min of the prep time.  I warmed the quinoa and corn up in the microwave together following the instructions.  At the same time, I sauteed the vegetables until tender (~5 min), add the Wildtree taco seasoning to enhance the flavor.  Next, I added the cooked veggies, quinoa, corn, black beans, cilantro, enchilada sauce, lime juice, and 1 cup of cheese to a mixing bowl and lightly tossed.  I poured the mixture into a 9 x 15 baking dish and then sprinkled with remaining cheese.  Bake for 20 ~ 25 min until cheese is brown and bubbly.

Add-ons:  You can pair this with chips, guacamole, Greek yogurt, sour cream, salsa, etc.
