"We are trying to eat healthier, but we still want flavorful, so I came up with this recipe. My family loves it! Great served with chips, stuffed in half a zucchini (and baked), in a tortilla, or just by itself!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

My favorite part about this meal is that it looks the same going in as it does going out.
I followed this recipe exactly. When I finished, I ended up keeping it on low and making a double amount of quinoa afterwards as I couldn't tell there was any in it. It tasted like just a seasoned plate of ground beef. Next time I would do 1.5 cups of quinoa, add some sautéed onions, more seasonings and possibly an additional vegetable or more of the ones already in it. The recipe as is could be served with tortillas as tacos.
This recipe is fantastic! Easy to make and delicious. It's a nice spin on regular salsa chili (using ground chicken and adding the quinoa). I added a bit more salsa because I wanted to finish up the jar. Finely chopped the zucchini so I could "sneak" it in. Thanks for sharing this yummy (can be one pot) meal.
Didn't have zucchini or corn, substituted mixed vegetables. I also doubled the chicken and added cream of chicken soup. My 3 kids who can be very picky LOVED it!!
I enjoyed this quick and easy recipe. Instead of a can of diced tomatoes, I diced a whole tomato and 1/2 an Anaheim pepper. I also added an onion and doubled the quinoa.
I tried this recipe with all the ingredients except the corn. I did add sea salt as well and it turned out very well! My husband who is ultra picky actually said it was good and he never says that! Two thumbs up!
This was delicious! The leftovers are even better and even good cold!
Didn't know what to expect, but everyone loved this one! I didn't have salsa, but I did include a little extra tomato and chicken broth. :)
