This time of year, potluck is all the rage. I can’t tell you how many family reunions, church homecomings and school team functions I got to every year. And every year I struggle to find the perfect potluck dish to bring along. Well this year, I won’t be struggling thanks to this amazing quinoa chili recipe. I tried this one out on my family – those poor little guinea pigs – and they loved it. I will definitely be bringing this to the next potluck I attend and maybe even a chili cook-off or two.
I love cooking, I really do. Nothing brings me more joy than to see my family or friends enjoying a meal that I have created. Well, nothing except easy recipes, which is why I really love this one. You can have it on the table in about half an hour – how’s that for quick and easy? If you’re looking for another quick and easy soup recipe, you just have to try this yummy white bean with bacon soup. It really is delicious and so easy to make.
With red onion, quinoa, white beans, corn, and chicken – not to mention the flavorings – this is definitely going to be a hit at your next potluck or the dinner table. Since it’s so quick and easy to make, it’s also a great go-to dinner when you need something fast for those busy weeknights. This crispy parmesan salmon is also quick and easy and utterly filled with vitamins and nutrients.
So, back to the chili – this is an amazing recipe that is filled with flavor and won’t take you long at all in the kitchen. The next time you have a family reunion or other potluck dinner coming up, I hope you’ll make this – everyone will love it.
