Turkey Taco Quinoa Bake

00:45:00

This recipe hits a lot of the right notes: quick, simple, and healthy! We love this recipe at Devilish Kitchen, in fact, we make it about once a month! The leftovers reheat really well, if you hold the toppings until serving, which makes for an awesome weekday lunch! We top it with all of our favorite taco toppings and some crunched up corn tortilla chips.
