Vegan Enchiladas

enchilada 

One of my weaknesses is Mexican food, especially Chipotle. Argh (did you know they have a vegan burrito bowl now? – *rejoice*)! Sometimes I simply crave ooey gooey queso dip – which is pretty much melted cheese, or melted loads of calories and sodium that fit nicely in my tummy. So it’s crucial that I make a healthy dish to satisfy my cravings!

My vegan enchilada recipe looks pretty much like a burrito, but I just love big servings of veggies so it doesn’t matter, we are still calling it an enchilada recipe! Anyways, the filling consists of nutrient bursting veggies like: spinach (lots of spinach), red peppers, corn, and onion and garlic. I also used Spice Pandas Spanish Paella mix to give these bad boys a kick.

You can also add a side of Greek yogurt to act as sour cream, which is extremely delicious paired with each bite of vegan enchilada! Do you have any healthy Mexican recipes you love? Please share with me in the comments, I would love to try yours too!
