I'm pretty obsessed with quinoa. Not quite as obsessed as I am with brownies, but still pretty obsessed. This Slow Cooker Quinoa and Chicken Chili was fantastic, if you ask me. The kids didn't dig it so much, at least the 12 year old didn't. She asked me "Mom, why can't you make anything normal? Like something you don't need a recipe for? Just open a can of spaghetti sauce!" I really hope her husband is an easy one to please. :)
1 cup quinoa
3 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
2 large chicken breast
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons chili powder
Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours (or high for 4 to 5 hours). Remove chicken and shred, then return to the slow cooker and mix well. Garnish as desired.
