One Pot Wonder – Quinoa Chicken Enchilada Bowls

One of the things I love about this dish is how easy it is to make. I start with cooking some chicken and green onions in my dutch oven (you can use a large stock pot or large pan if you don’t have a dutch oven).

Then I add a bit of puffed quinoa to give it a chance to toast up a bit before I add any liquid ingredients. I’m not sure if this step is really necessary, but I like for my quinoa to toast a little.

Then come the liquid ingredients (listed in recipe below). Once you add the liquid ingredients you just cover and let cook until most of the liquid is cooked out. The quinoa will soak up quite a bit of it making those little seeds nice and soft.

To make this recipe simple you can use canned chilis, tomatoes, and corn like I did, as well as a can of La Victoria enchilada sauce. Of course fresh ingredients are great as well if you have them on hand but it may add a bit of prep time to this dish.

Once completed, top with a bit of shredded cheese. I like a lot of cheese so I usually add a lot more than pictured here, but add as little or as much as you like. This dish tastes great topped with a bit of sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and sliced green onions as well!
