Quinoa, Chicken & Sweet Potato Stew

1 T dried minced onion

1 tsp. jarred minced garlic

2 1/2 cups cooked chopped chicken (could use more)

2 14 1/2 oz. cans chicken broth (if it seems dry, add more)

1 T chili powder

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed

2 16 oz. cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil (this is different than the original recipe and added so much flavor)

Salt and pepper to taste

I mixed everything lightly in the crock pot, and then let it simmer on high all day till dinner (about 8 hours).
