Black Bean Quinoa Enchilada Bake

This has always been one of my favorites. I got this recipe from Pinterest a while ago. I'm not quite sure who posted it. I tried to look it up but there are actually a lot of similar recipes on there.  The whole family likes this one! Sometimes I serve it with some tortilla chips and avocado, yum!!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED :

1 1/2-2 cups of cooked quinoa

2 Cups of water

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic minced

1 jalapeño, seeds, and ribs removed diced

1 red pepper seeds removed, diced

1 orange pepper seeds removed, diced

1 cup of frozen corn

Juice of one small lime

1 Tsp of ground cumin

1 1/2  Tbsp of chili powder

1/3 cup of chopped cilantro

Salt and pepper to taste

1 15.5 oz cans of black beans drained and rinsed

2 cups of red enchilada sauce

2 1/2 cups of Daiya shredded pepper jack cheese

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 baking dish.

In a large skillet heat olive oil, medium heat. Add onion garlic and jalapeño. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in the peppers and the corn. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and cilantro. Stir to combine and add salt and pepper to taste.

In a large bowl add the cooked quinoa, black beans, and the sautéed veggies and stir to combine. Add enchilada sauce and stir. Add 1/2 cup of the cheese and combine. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and bake until heated through about 30 minutes.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family! Let me know what you think and be sure to share!

 

Take care of you,
