1-Pot Meals: Gluten-Free Crockpot Quinoa Tacos

Let’s talk about how amazing crockpots are for a minute. They’re an excellent time-saver, not to mention one of the only appliances that make it more convenient to cook something slowly. So you can have a great-tasting recipe, like these Crockpot Quinoa Tacos, ready to eat with very little effort.

Plus, as we’re getting into our autumn routines with busy schedules, it’s important to have a few nutritional tricks up your sleeve to make balanced cooking a breeze. One of our best tricks to get more protein, fiber, and essential amino acids in any meal is to add our pre-rinse quinoa to your dinnertime favorites.

We’ve taken the traditional taco and given it the Ancient Harvest upgrade by stirring in our pre-rinsed organic quinoa, and making the entire recipe in a crockpot.
