Quinoa Enchilada Bake

Quinoa Enchilada Bake Recipe Wanderlust in the City

It’s cold outside and New Year’s resolutions are kicking in, so it’s the perfect time of year for delicious comfort food hot out of the oven. My Quinoa Enchilada Bake recipe has everything that you would want in comfort food (hello cheese!) plus it’s healthy and is packed with nutrients.

To make, you’ll need:

1 cup uncooked quinoa

Olive oil

3 cloves garlic

1 red pepper

1 orange pepper

1 yellow pepper

1 cup frozen corn

1 lime

1 packet taco seasoning

Cilantro

Green onion

2 cans black beans

1 can tomato sauce

1 can diced tomatoes

Avocado

Shredded Mexican cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Boil the quinoa in water for 5 minutes, then simmer for 15 minutes until the quinoa is tender. Then set it aside.

While the quinoa is cooking, dice your peppers and garlic cloves.

Pour some olive oil onto a large skillet, and heat the garlic on medium for a few minutes until it softens.

Now add in the peppers and corn, and cook for about 3-4 minutes.

Now squeeze lime juice over the skillet, and then add small pieces of cilantro and the taco seasoning. Stir everything together.

In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, black beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and vegetable mixture. Stir everything together.

Then pour the mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Add a generous (and I mean generous) layer of cheese.

Cover the pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is nice and melted.

Remove the dish from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. You can use this time to add green onion, avocado, and any other toppings that you would like.

Then serve warm while the cheese is still nice and melty.

You can also eat it with chips or tortillas (or both! go crazy!).
