Enter —> Easy Meal Prep Veggie Enchiladas!!
These enchiladas aren’t just easy + delicious, they are nutritious & RD-approved! They even follow my #terrificthree approach, with a healthy balance of complex carbohydrate (the whole-wheat tortilla), protein (beans & cheese) + veggies (lots of them!).
Here’s the recipe:
Makes 8 Servings
8 whole grain tortillas
2 cups of chopped veggies (any kind!)
1.5 cups shredded cheese (your favorite flavor!)
2 cups enchilada sauce (I buy canned sauce to simplify my life!)
1-15 oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
Salt, pepper & cumin to taste
With light olive oil, sauté chopped veggies in a large skillet over medium heat & season with spices.
Transfer veggies to a mixing bowl and add beans, 1/4 cup cheese and 2 tbsp of enchilada sauce. Mix well!
Spread 1/2 cup veggie filling mix down the middle eat tortilla and then fold, left over right.
Spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce to bottom of 13×9 inch pan and place enchilada seam down. Repeating with remaining tortillas and filling.
Drizzle remaining enchilada sauce over the tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes until cheese is golden & bubbly!
