Quinoa & Black Bean Chilaquiles

This super simple crockpot meal is a meat free meal where you won't miss the meat for my meat eaters! Try this one on MeatLESS Monday.

Chilaquiles is basically just a fancy word for nachos as this crockpot dish is served over crispy tortilla chips. I used non GMO RW Garcia 3 seed Veggie strips for the first time and the family loved them!
