    Awesome recipe and for extra protein I added shredded chicken. Easy to fix.

    Super yum! Everyone went back for extra helpings! We added some chicken and some extra corn, I think next time we’ll add a little sauce, too!

    This dish was quite enjoyable for a quick dinner. I used a fresh jalapeno pepper and currry powder in place of the cumin.

    Good flavors but way too mushy to eat as a casserole, and I even added radishes as a garnish. This actually might be good with tortilla chips as a kind of nacho dip, or rolled up in a soft tortilla like a taco. The Roma tomatoes on top really kick up the freshness.

    Added chicken and onions; extra beans and corn (extra cumin, chili and some cayenne) - It was a huge hit! I had three quinoa “dislikers” go for thirds!

    Excellent. Have made it 3 times, adding rotisserie chicken the last time. Drain canned vegetables, use full cans. I added canned roasted tomatoes and Hatch Green Chili salsa (med) instead of mild chopped chilies, and chopped onions. It thickens as it cools.
    was pretty good. will make this again.

    Added more corn, black beans and quinoa. Was pretty good. Works really well as a dip with some chips, too!

    Great for lunch and reasonably healthy. I just dumped the quinoa into the casserole dish with enchilada sauce and enough water that the sauce + water = 2 cups and baked it in the oven. no need to pot cook it first.

    very enjoyable but i didnt put it in the oven as i didnt want it to go dry.

    i added shredded beef which gave it better consistency. i think without it then the consistency would be more mushy

    The flavor was very good but the consistency is not what I cared for would I make this again probably notc

    We all enjoyed it! Easy and delicious. I used the whole can of corn and beans, silly to measure them out

    I felt like it needed more corn and beans for the amount of quinoa it made. It tasted good though! My tip would be just to not use as much quinoa.

    I used green chile enchilada sauce instead and really liked it!! It was watery, but I had forgotten to drain the beans.

    Awesome, we used it as a side. Substituted​ homemade enchilada sauce instead of the El Paso one and it worked out great.

    so good, works as a main dish with a side salad, or, we ended up using the left overs for alot of snacking with tortilla chips! versatile purposes i guess;) love it (and how healthy it is)

    It was delicious! It was a little spicy for the other diner with me, but neither of us love a lot of spice. I also didn’t put avocado or tomato in it, so that might’ve contributed

    So delicious! We didn't have quinoa, so I substituted Farro and it was great! Maybe a bit more hearty than quinoa. We will definitely make this again!
    Turned out amazing Would highly suggest
