    I made shredded chicken instead of ground white meat, doubled the rice, and added diced purple onion. Will absolutely be making again!

    Love this recipe! Super easy and tastes amazing! Very healthy and filling my fiancé ate it by itself and then tried it with tortilla chips. This will definitely be a staple in our diet.

    My daughter is a "food" in training and lives this recipe. I followed these same directions* and cooked on the Slow Cook setting of my IP. She and husband loved it still! *I replaced the quinoa with 1/2 C rice and used 1/2 water.

    My family and I liked this. I love crock pot recipes that allow me to exercise (walk and yoga) after work. I come home at 7 and everything is ready. I am making again this week!
    A family favorite now. I have corn on the side for some family members who are pickier. Easy to make.

    This is extremely easy to make. My son loves any Mexican dish so this is a hit with him. The bell peppers add an extra flavorness. I started off with one can of enchilada sauce and it wasn't as good so I had to run out and get another can, what a difference an extra can makes
