Slow Cooker Enchilada Quinoa Bake

Slow Cooker Enchilada Quinoa Baka 

This slow cooker recipe is one of my favorites – It is perfect for dinner with tortilla shells or as a healthy dip with tortilla chips…and the perfect appetizer to bring to a party…bring plenty of copies of the recipe! The best part – It’s healthy and SUPER easy to make. Oh, and boyfriend approved 🙂 

  • 1 lb. ground turkey 
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa (Rinse & Dry) 
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 small can salsa
  • 1 small can of green chillies
  • optional:  jalapeno 
  • 1/2 jar or can of green enchilada sauce (Sometimes I add this, sometimes I omit it. Don’t stress if you can’t find it! It tastes delicious both ways) 
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 Bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp. cumin
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 cup cheese 
  • 1 cup water
  • Optional Additions: avacado, cilantro, sour cream, tortilla chips, wraps/shells

Put everything BUT the turkey in the slow cooker and cook on high for 3-3.5 hours. At the end, brown the turkey in a skillet and add into the dish.
