So does the hubby!!!
They also make for a great freezer meal that I can pull out for a quick dinner when I have nothing else planned or don't have a lot of time.
The other day I decided to make the hubby some enchiladas for dinner......
I knew that if I made him some and watched him eat them, I would want them as well. Not wanting to eat them, I thought of a way to make some healthier ones for me to eat!!! :D Always gotta be thinking!!! ;)
Here is what I came up with!!!
(adapted by ME!!!)
|Veggie enchiladas with a side of brussels sprouts topped with Nutritional Yeast and Sriracha!!!|
- Mission Yellow Corn Tortillas (I used the extra thin ones......2 tortillas for 80 calories)
- Mixed veggies of your choice (I used spinach, zucchini, squash, carrots, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts); chopped
- ~1/8 cup Feta cheese
- 2 pinches of sharp cheddar cheese
- 1-2 cloves fresh garlic
- Enchilada sauce
- Olive oil
- Heat olive oil in a small skillet until hot
- Chop all veggies and the garlic and sautee until they are no longer crisp
- Remove from skillet and place in a bowl
- Add a little more olive oil to the skillet and allow to become hot again
- Place 1 tortilla in oil and let "fry" for 5 seconds, then flip and allow to "fry" again for 5 more seconds
- Remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels to "blot" the tortillas
- Repeat for as many enchiladas you want to make
- Once all your tortillas are "fried", start to assemble the enchiladas
- Place one tortilla on a plate. Scoop in some veggies and top with some Feta cheese
- Roll tortilla up and place in casserole dish or individual containers if you are planning on freezing them
- Once all the enchiladas are made, top with the cheddar cheese and enchilada sauce (omit the sauce if freezing and then put sauce on right before heating and serving)
- I make mine in the microwave, so heat for 2:30-3 minutes on high and then allow to cool a bit before eating!
These came out so yummy!!!! I also chopped up a Kraft Jalapeño mozzarella stick and placed that on top of the enchiladas before the sauce was added! Yum!!!!!
Just remember, the olive oil is a good, healthy fat, so don't be afraid to use a little. No need to go overboard with it, but it is OK to use it for cooking!!!
Hope you enjoy them!!!
