Alotta Enchilada

Have you ever made authentic enchiladas? It’s a lot of work to warm each tortilla, dip it in sauce, add the filling, roll it up and to set it in the pan just right so that it doesn’t unroll. That’s why we love this Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Bake recipe made with Success® Tri-Color Quinoa! You get all the spicy flavors and cheesy enchilada goodness you crave without any of that painstaking work.

This tasty recipe is as simple as they come. Simply mix together the cooked quinoa, shredded chicken, green chiles, enchilada sauce and cheese. Set this mixture aside and spread enchilada sauce along the bottom of a prepped casserole dish. Add a layer of tortillas on top of the enchilada sauce and a layer of the quinoa mix on top of that. Top with another layer of tortillas and then another layer of the quinoa mix. Then, simply top the layers with more enchilada sauce, sprinkle with onions and cheese and bake. That’s it! Serve each helping with sour cream and cilantro and enjoy.
