Old El Paso Tortilla Bowls

Quinoa is a great addition to meals and can be used as a substitute for rice. Not only is it good for you, but it tastes great, too. Delicioso!  πŸ™‚ These chicken quinoa tortilla bowls are a fun twist on a favourite family meal and are loaded with fresh vegetables and wholesome grains.  Mexican meals are always a hit with everyone, regardless of age. 

Old El Paso Tortilla Bowls

These chicken quinoa tortilla bowls use OLD EL PASO tortilla bowls instead of traditional tortillas.  They make loading up and eating extremely easy because of their bowl shape. They will take the mess out of Taco Tuesday!

Everyone loves something even if it’s only tortillas.

This is the perfect meal to enlist help with the preparation. There is something for everyone to cut, chop or dice…no super cooking skills needed, my friends.   πŸ™‚

I served this meal “taco bar” style so that everyone was able to take some creative control over the creation of their chicken quinoa tortilla bowl. If you are eating with my brother it is important to take your guacamole right away because once he takes his there is likely nothing left.  #HolyGuacamole he can eat a lot!

This is also an easy meal to do most of the prep ahead of time, making it a go-to meal for those busy evenings. With the quinoa made and the vegetables prepared, you can have this meal ready in 15 minutes flat. Everything but the guacamole can be made ahead.   While you are warming the quinoa and tortilla bowls, you can quickly make the guacamole.
