quinoa enchilada bake

Ben continually surprises me with his unexpected dinners on Monday nights. It was so good the next day for lunch at work that I took the photo above using my phone. I ran out of avocado and tomato, but doesn’t it look good already? Please imagine some freshly chopped avocado slices and tomatoes!

Carnivore Ben made me a vegetarian meal. This one is from Damn Delicious (for recipe click here), only instead of using Old El Paso products, he decided to make his own enchilada sauce, and also used a freshly roasted poblano pepper, instead of the canned green chiles! I’m sure the original recipe is good, but the results of using fresh ingredients and adding one’s own personal touch really push this over the edge, I think.

I’m spoiled.

If you are interested in homemade enchilada sauce, although I don’t have a recipe for it, I do know it’s made with guajillo and ancho peppers and some cumin and oregano, salt, and garlic. You can probably find a recipe online that would be just as good. Not that there’s anything wrong with using a canned product. Here’s one from epicurious: click here

Anyways, Happy Eats, and Happy Baking!

      Suzanne, I’m a fan of quinoa anyways, but mostly have had it cold and in a salad type dish. This is making me look for more hot dishes with quinoa.
