Crockpot Creamy Chicken & Green Bean Casserole

Crockpot Creamy Chicken & Green Bean Casserole | A delicious casserole featuring bacon, gouda, quinoa, and more! #recipe #maindish #bacon #quinoa #crockpot

I have made quite a few dishes with quinoa over the last year or so. It's quickly become a family favorite. We've even subbed it out when rice or pasta is called for because we love it so much. I jumped the gun when I found a crockpot quinoa recipe. I adapted it slightly because we had poor broccoli supply at the store at the time I wanted to make it and I wanted to make it extra cheesy with not only pepperjack but some smokey gouda cheese too! And I totally cheat and use the real bacon bits instead of frying up bacon because let's be honest - it's super messy!
