Crockpot Quinoa Tacos
Saturday, April 24, 2021
Yesterday I tried a new crockpot recipe for vegan tacos and I enjoyed it so I thought I would share it in case anyone desires to try it.
Since this is cooked in the crockpot, it’s a great dish to make ahead and can easily serve a large family or to fill your fridge with leftovers. We love filling corn tortillas with this hearty mixture and then topping with avocado, cilantro, and hot sauce.
