Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!

Big surprise but today just happens to be one of my favorite holidays.   I mean seriously ANY excuse to eat Mexican food and drink margaritas is good with me!

In honor of the holiday I thought I’d share a new health-i-fied Mexican dish today.  I’m even busting back out the Crock Pot for you.  It may or may not be the last time of the season.  We shall see 🙂

I’m calling it Crock Pot Vegetarian Mexican Quinoa Bake!  I wanted to add smoky chipolte in the title too…. but alas I decided that was a bit too wordy.  But never fear, it IS smoky and chipolte flavored.

The smoky flavor comes from adding a chipote in adobe sauce!  They are a little spicy so add as much or as little as you can handle.  The flavor is incredible though.

My Mexican Quinoa Bake is super versatile.  You can can just scoup it out and eat it as a main dish with toppings.

Or you can use it as a taco or burrito filling.

My favorite way is with fresh tomato, green onion, cilantro AND fresh sliced avocado! I mean how can you go wrong here?

The quinoa and beans make a complete protein and the veggies add plenty of healthy benefits.  It has all the good Mexican flavors but without any of the guilt!
