Quinoa Taco Casserole – Cooking with Kids
Hello Super Healthy Kids fans! You are going to love today’s One Pot Taco Casserole Recipe because full of protein and fiber, accommodates many dietary needs, and it takes a full 5 minutes (if that!) to toss together. Add the cooking time and you have a healthy meal on the table in less than 30 minutes. Every mom’s dream! We loved this just as it is with a little hot sauce and extra avocado on top and my kids dipped tortilla chips in it. The leftovers were even more delicious the next day for lunch thrown on a taco salad.
My name is Melissa and I blog over at Bless this Mess. My blog is a happy glimpse of small town life; I share lots of recipes, gardening tips, and our adventures in beginning a hobby farm (like hatching our own chicks!) and building our house. Meatless Mondays are one of my favorite meals of the week, you can see all of my favorite meatless recipes here. Enjoy!
One of my favorite parts of this recipes is that the quinoa cooks right in the dish, no need to have it cooked ahead of time. Just a heads up when it comes to quinoa. The package that you buy needs to say “pre-washed” or you need to rinse it yourself before using. Quinoa comes with a natural coating that makes it taste a whole lot like soap once it’s cooked if you haven’t rinsed it well first. I learned this the hard way, so learn from my mistake and read your package closely before ruining a whole dish.
