    Turned out really well! instead of enchilada sauce i used more diced canned tomatoes and a fajita spice mix I had already made. Water to cook quinoa was listed as 2 cups, which is way too much to cook 1/2 cup quinoa. I used 3/4 cup dried quinoa in 1.5 cups cooking water. my family really enjoyed this with the sour cream, avocado and lime juice. I will make it again for sure.

    Little watery. I ate it with tortilla chips, and it was pretty good. Added oregano as well. It’s lacking in flavor a bit, would maybe be good with some veggie crumbles or something to add to the texture and take away from the watery-ness of of all.
