Quinoa has slow­ly become a sta­ple in my home!  I love cook­ing with it because it packs so much pro­tein and keeps you full after a meal!  This recipe for Slow Cook­er Gluten Free Mexi Quinoa and Beans would be a great addi­tion to a potluck or Taco Night!

  1. Add beans, quinoa, broth, sal­sa, corn, cumin, sea salt and gar­lic to crock.
  2. Cov­er and crock on HIGH for 2 hours.
  3. After 2 hours, fluff quinoa with a fork.
  4. Add fresh lime juice to your lik­ing; next sprin­kle with sea salt and pep­per to taste.
