    It was good, maybe a little salty. This was my first time ever cooking with quinoa but I liked it! I added a lb of ground beef and used sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheeses.

    This is SO yummy! And healthy!! And filling!! I wasn't expecting much from this recipe but it turned out beautifully and I have been making it regularly since then😋!

    It was really good, pretty easy. Only change I made (because of supplies on hand) was the cheese Used Mexican Blend in the casserole & used sharp Cheddar on top. It was great for me but my carb loving husband rolled it into a flour tortilla. Froze the leftovers, will make again.

    Not a fan of this one. I really wanted to like this one because it provides great protein and fiber. I doctores it up with Sou4 cream and taco sauce but neither my daughter nor I cared for this one. Bummer.

    I’m not a huge fan of quinoa. However, I thought I’d give this a try hoping that I’d find a recipe using it that would actually taste good. Well, after making it, which was very easy by the way, I can say that it was delicious! It’s tasty, it’s filling, and it’s light. I served blue tortilla chips with it and everyone sad it was wonderful. And there’s time to clean up as things are cooking, so there’s not much left to do after dinner.

    Exceptional taste! I substituted regular cheese with vegan cheese & there was no difference in taste.

    Everyone raved - I added more salt, used a flowery-cow cheese, along with a ton of manchego. I used the big can of enchilada sauce and topped this with Sabazo-sprinkled avocados, cilantro, tomatoes, and green onions.

    If this was one cup of cooked quinoa, I think it would have been better. Cooking one cup of dry quinoa seemed to make this dish just a lot of quinoa with some cheese.

    Delicious and easy. Used pinto beans because that is what I had. Would definitely add this to the regular meal rotation

    Great! I added chicken and doubled all the ingredients. I accidentally added avocado to the mix. It was a yummy mistake for sure!

    It turned out well. I added a second can of beans and halved the green chilies since my kids won’t tolerate a lot of spice.

    Turned out great! I added a lb of drained hamburger and it was perfect!

    Very good ! I didn't use mozzarella to keep it healthy but added taco's to serve and a bit of crunch. I like spicy food so I also went crazy on the jalapeños and made a yogurt / garlic sauce to cool

    it was really good! whole family loved it, though it was a tad too spicy for me but im not a fan of spicy stuff.

    Turned out fantastic! I added a little organic chi chunky salsa as a topping along with avocado and tomatoes. Will definitely make it again!
