"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.
This is a pretty good recipe. I made a few changes. I added 1/2 onion, about a 1/4 tsp. of cumin, salt to taste and cilantro as a garnish.
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 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!
Spicy Chicken Quinoa Haiku: "Fairly tasty meal. I made it ahead of time, baked it for dinner." I prepared this ahead in a roundey casserole dish, only omitting corn. Sprinkled the cheese on top and baked 350 for 20-25 min. b4 serving w/ cilantro on top; however, we found that it desperately needed even more added for flavor at that point; more salsa, salt, cheese, Sriracha. I love the combination of black beans, zucchini, and quinoa, but I think making it again, I would really go strong on spices; cumin, taco seasoning etc ..
Thought that four servings wouldn't be enough so doubled the recipe; it made a TON! Great tasting food, very easy to prepare. Avoid canned chicken if possible it tastes different
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.
