Quinoa Taco Bake – 21 Day Fix Vegetarian Recipe

FacebookEvernoteRedditPocketWhatsAppGoogle Bookmarks

I loooooove me some Mexican food! It usually don’t have a place when eating well. Until you switch around your thinking, that is. This quinoa dish is easy, cheap and delicious. It’s also an approved 21 Day Fix vegetarian recipe!   I like to make it and eat as tacos with a little bit of Greek yogurt in place of sour cream and some salsa to jazz it up even more. It’s incredibly filling and makes a great leftover lunch!   Quinoa-Taco-Bake-21-Day-Fix-Vegetarian-8

21 Day Fix Container Values:

Red: 2 (quinoa + recipe crumbles)

Purple: 1 (salsa)

Green: 1 (onion + pepper)

Blue: 1 (cheese)

free: lime juice, garlic, chili powder, onion powder, cumin, garlic + cilantro

If you do like I did and use it as a taco filling you’re looking at 1 yellow too for 2 corn tortillas. I didn’t count the tbsp of Greek yogurt and salsa.
