Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 cup quinoa
1 cup chicken stock or vegetable broth
2 cans (15 ounces EACH) black beans
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes in tomato juice*
1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce**
1 can (15 ounces) corn
3 tablespoons or 1 packet (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning***
Corn or flour tortillas
Top with your favorites: queso fresco cheese, diced avocado, cilantro, fresh lime

Directions:
Directions:
Rinse the quinoa in a fine mesh sieve to remove bitter saponin coating.

In a large crockpot (I use a 6 quart crockpot), add in the quinoa, chicken stock (vegetable broth to keep vegetarian), drained and rinsed black beans, undrained diced tomatoes in tomato juice, enchilada sauce, drained corn, and packet taco seasoning (or homemade taco seasoning).

Stir. Cover and cook on high 2.5 hours to 4 hours depending on the heat of your slow cooker.

Important notes with cooking quinoa in slow cooker: slow cookers cook at different temperatures! You'll want to watch this carefully if you have a slow cooker that runs hot so the quinoa doesn't get mushy. This recipe doesn't work on low because quinoa will get mushy when cooked on low for long time periods.
When quinoa is cooked through, serve on corn or flour tortillas and top with your desired toppings.
Garnish with a squeeze of fresh lime, cilantro, a diced avocado, and lots of queso fresco cheese!

Personal Notes:
*Use diced tomatoes with green chilies for more spice if desired. **I like medium enchilada sauce in this recipe. I use Great Value, Rosarita, or Old El Paso all with great results. Homemade should also work -- just make sure it is to your heat preference. ***If Gluten intolerant, make sure to buy a gluten-free taco seasoning packet. If vegan is a concern, make without cheese!
