I’m currently obsessed with quinoa. Not that it’s new to me, it’s just been a while since I’ve cooked with it.
And can I just say this chili knocked dinner out of the park? Hubby loved it. And even my picky two year old liked it. This Quinoa Chicken Chili is thick and hearty and packed with protein. It’s just the meal to warm up to on a chilly fall night and one the entire family will love.
And you get to cook it in the crock pot. Fix it and forget. Dump everything in in the morning, watch re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy all day run errands, do laundry, nurse a baby a billion times, pick up Lego’s, sweep toddler crumbs off the floor….you know, mom stuff.
You don’t have to cook the quinoa, just rinse it before you put it in the crock pot and it’ll cook up perfectly!
By the time you’re done with all the mom stuff, or work stuff, or whatever you’re filling your day with, when dinner time rolls around, it’ll be ready without any effort from you. My kind of dinner.
