“ Quinoa is an absolute staple in our house, even though it’s a little more expensive than rice or pasta. It’s a high-protein, gluten-free grain that works with our vegetarian diet. We’re always looking for creative ways to use quinoa, and this casserole is one of our new favorites. (It’s also a good way to use up some leftover quinoa from the night before.) Made with 1 tablespoon chipotles, the dish will be medium-spicy, but Nick likes it extra-spicy, which is why we use 2 tablespoons.”
