I love making healthy comfort food. It makes enjoying a big filling meal, less guilt inducing. Cozy without the conflict, which is perfect for me.
Really, who doesn’t love hearty meals!?!? I want to enjoy them, but I don’t want it to impact my waist line. Sure, salads are crave-able, but really, let’s focus on what we really want: some yummy enchiladas!
These vegetable enchiladas are awesome for dinner when you are craving all that zesty enchilada-ness, without wanting meat, or feeling like you over did it. They are packed full of flavor from veggies and the homemade enchilada sauce.
While you might think that homemade sauce is just going to be too difficult to master, or will take to long. I am here to tell you, that homemade sauce is easy and worth the tiny bit of effort to cut up an onion, and simmer some spices with some canned tomato sauce. You’ll be a convert to homemade enchilada sauce in no time!
So, these vegetable enchiladas are loaded up with zucchini, corn, bell pepper, black beans, and some onion. Perfect for a fresh dish to enjoy during the summer. Ah, imagine just shucking some corn or picking some zucchini and putting them in there?!? Oh my, that would be so good! But, the best part about this is that you can make these year ’round with some frozen corn. Plus, we all know that zucchini is just about always in the store, so in issues there. Grab it while prepping for your next winter storm. ha!
These are a great addition to your weeknight dinners. I swear you’ll fall in love with them because they are so easy to make, affordable, and delicious.
Plus, they make for wonderful leftovers. I bet all your co-workers will be super jealous of your lunch when you pop open your tupperware. Their ham sandwich won’t stand a chance against these healthy vegetable enchiladas.
Don’t feel like making enchiladas? Then just enjoy the flavorful vegetable filling over some rice or quinoa. It’s just as yummy that way too. I swear. It’s just like a reconstructed enchilada. All I’m focusing on is just getting to enjoy dinner, no matter if it’s rolled up, or in a bowl. Oh, dare I say that it would be great on a big pile of nachos!
These vegetable enchiladas are going to be a dinner time staple for your house in no time. You’ll fall in love with the aromas from the homemade enchilada sauce.
