Quinoa Taco Casserole

It’s officially fall!!! Casserole season is upon us!!

I LOVEEEEE to make casseroles! Any type, doesn’t matter! Although it doesn’t get very cold here in Florida, I like to pretend its chilly outside with fall scented candles, Christmas decorations and casseroles in the oven! 🥘

This quinoa taco casserole was super easy and super delicious for a Sunday night family dinner! 🌚
