Healthy, easy enchilada quinoa made right in the crock pot. Just set it and forget it for a cheesy, protein-packed meal.
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-ounce can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
2 15-ounce cans mild or medium red enchilada sauce, divided
1 15-ounce can diced fire roasted tomatoes and green chiles
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 cup water
4 ounces cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste (I used about 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper)
1 cup shredded Mexican style cheese
optional: chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, diced avocado, sour cream
Add beans, corn, 1 can of enchilada sauce, diced tomatoes and chiles, quinoa, water, cream cheese, and salt and pepper to the slow cooker. Stir everything together.
Pour remaining can of enchilada sauce on top, then sprinkle with shredded cheese. Cover and cook 4-5 hours on high or 5-7 hours on low.
Uncover, top with tomatoes, avocados, sour cream, and chopped cilantro and serve.
