    Cooked it in the instant pot. Going to double next time and freeze for later.

    Delicious and great flavor! I haven’t found a vegan cheese that melts well though.

    Very good, I added more to spice amounts and I squeezed some fresh lime juice on each serving.

    Tasty! I used chives from my patio garden in lieu of green onions; in lieu of adding cheese and baking, covered pot after adding diced tomatoes. Simmered for 10 mins. Perfect hint of seasoning!

    It was very filling and healthy. We made guacamole to go with it and added mung bean sprouts which improved it immensely but honestly-it could’ve used more flavor

    Didn't put cheese on top and didn't bake it and it was delicious, very nutritious 👍

    Delicious! We all added a little hot sauce to spice it up a bit and my non-vegan teenage son added dairy cheese but everyone cleaned their plates

    Delicious! I use as a burrito filling, add salsa and a little romaine and it makes a tasty and healthy burrito!

    Pretty dull recipe. I think it relies on the cheese because otherwise, there’s not a lot of flavor, and the veggie to quinoa ratio is way off. Too much quinoa, too few veggies. I added rotisserie chicken to mine.

    Really tasty dish. Could maybe use a little enchilada sauce or salsa, but also was good as is.

    My family and I really liked this recipe. The flavors are all balanced. I added more cilantro as a garnish. I would make it again definitely.

    Great! I will definitely make this again. I was out of black beans so I used pinto beans instead.

    Yummy and quick! I used frozen steam in bag quinoa and our favorite fresh made salsa to simplify the recipe even more. Kid approved!

    I left out the yellow bell peppers and substituted crushed red pepper for the cayenne. It was delicious.
