Quinoa Enchilada Casserole

One thing I love about this recipe is its versatility. Pinto beans, black beans, kidney beans all work. Use what you already have on hand. Same with the cheese. Cheddar, Monterey Jack, colby jack, pepper jack all work just fine. Forget to thaw the corn? No problem! Just throw it in frozen.
