Hello to all the lovers of easy veggie enchiladas! The kind that are saucy, cheesy, filling, and just so cozy when pulled hot and bubbling straight out of the oven. Also, the kind that are actually easy to make, and they have, like, a haul of ACTUAL veggies and authentic Mexican cheese tucked into those warm, soft, sauce-soaked tortillas.
- Sweet potatoes
- Broccoli (!!)
And really, just about any other veggies you could want. Spinach, mushrooms, corn, poblano peppers, squash, cauliflower… literally all of the above can work.
These are enchiladas, yes, but really, mostly, this is a thing that you make to celebrate the fact that eating really good, cozy food can also mean eating lots of healthy vegetables and that all of it can come into existence with one snap of your veggie-loving fingers.
As established, the cheese is the hero here, but can we pause for a second to give honorable mention to black beans, red enchilada sauce, corn tortillas, and a really yummy-tasting veggies?
You know I have opinions about this. Please locate yourself a bag of creamy, smooth-melting, authentic and delicious V&V Supremo® Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese. You can buy a very large bag at Costco and you will go through it in approximately three days because it’s so good on, oh, let’s see, EVERYTHING? It’s the only kind of shredded cheese I use to add authentic flavor in my Mexican and Tex-Mex-ish recipes – truly the cheesy, melty gold standard!
How to Make Vegetarian Enchiladas
Vegetarian enchiladas should start with… yeah. Veggies.
LOTS OF THEM.
Here’s my easy, easy, easy approach:
Pile them all on a sheet pan and roast them. That’s it. That’s the secret.
This is a one-sheet-pan approach. Some veggies might cook a little faster. And it’s all gonna be okay. We just need everybody soft enough to be edible and folded into our filling.
Which… is going to look like this. Don’t be scared.
The veggie / bean / cheese combo is going straight into some corn tortillas, which are getting a nice generous covering of enchilada sauce.
And the whole thing is getting tucked in with more V&V Supremo® Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese. Oh, the sweet meltiness!
I can think of no more wonderful thing to pull out of your oven tonight than a pan of these healthy, veggie-loaded beauties.

- 10–12 corn tortillas
- avocado, cilantro, and lime for serving
- Veggies: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Arrange veggies on a large sheet pan. Toss with olive oil and salt. Roast for 25-30 minutes.
- Filling: In a large bowl, combine roasted veggies with the black beans, 1 cup V&V Supremo® Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese and 1 cup enchilada sauce. Stir / gently mash to make a chunky filling.
- Roll Enchiladas: Spread some enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Roll filling into tortillas, and place them seam-side down in the pan. Cover with remaining sauce and cheese.

Enchilada Sauce Options:
- Store-bought! If you can, use one that has real ingredients and good flavor.
- Homemade! This is an easy blender enchilada sauce that uses real veggies (onion, tomatoes, garlic) as the base. It can be simmered down while the veggies roast. This is a smoother, thicker enchilada sauce that uses flour and spices as the base. Also very good!
