Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites

Rated as 4.79 out of 5 Stars

"These little bites are a crowd-pleaser for social events, but we also like to make a big batch and freeze them to take to work during the week. They reheat in 20 to 40 seconds in the microwave. Very versatile!"

Tasty with room for variation. I only substituted about 1-2 tsp of Sriracha for preference and to keep it mild for the kids. The ingredients came together well, not stiff and dry not too runny t...
