  • 1 Cup Quinoa, Uncooked
  • 1 Cup Frozen corn
  • 2/3 Cup Reduced Sodium Chickpeas, Drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup Black Beans, Drained and rinsed
  • 1 Cup Red Pepper, Chopped
  • 1 Cup Roma Tomato, Chopped,
  • 1/2 Cup Onion, Roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cumin
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1-1 1/2 Tbsp sauce from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 Cups Reduced Sodium Vegetable Broth
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese, For garnish (optional)
  • Fresh Cilantro, For garnish


  1. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray and place the uncooked quinoa, corn, chickpeas, black beans, red pepper, tomato, onion cumin powder, garlic, salt, pepper and adobe sauce inside, stirring until well combined.

  2. Pour in in the vegetable broth, stir well, and cover the pot. Cook on high for 3-4 hours. Mine was perfect at 3 hours, so check it and make sure the quinoa isn’t burning.
