Southwestern Ham and Cheese Quinoa Bites

Raven Higheagle


I'm in bite sized mode here at the house today, bite sized is great for me to feed lots of loved ones.
Pack some great southwestern flavor. Ham and cheese is always a winning combination add in a few secret ingredients and you have yourself a perfect bite sized meal. These freeze great. I store them in a gallon resealable bag. Take them out and Spritz them with water and either microwave them until heated or defrost and pop them in a 350 degrees oven for about 10 minutes.
