Meatless Mondays- Quinoa Enchilada Casserole

I try to make our Monday meal meatless but it still needs to be filling. Even without the meat this is super filling. The quinoa and beans give this mean tons of protein and fiber without the meat. It makes a lot so be ready for leftovers or a lot of mouths to feed!!

Food Allergies- Quinoa Enchilada Casserole

Gluten Free- All my recipes are gluten free because my husband has Celiac Disease, which means he is allergic to gluten. Now if you’re wondering what has gluten in it in this recipe, it’s the enchilada sauce.

Make sure you get a gluten free enchilada sauce. There are a lot of brands out there that add flour to their enchilada sauce so make sure and read the labels. I always use Hatch since I know they certify that their sauce is gluten free.
