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.

Including:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Peppers
  • Onions
  • 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:

Veggies on a roasting pan.

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.

    Wow, it’s looking yummy. I will definitely try it out and thanks a lot for providing all the details about recipe and ingredient. The print recipe option is awesome and helpful.

      I loved this version, no frying, I used sweet potatoes, zucchini, peppers and onion, it turned out scrumptious.
      Made homemade sauce with some spices added.
      Yummy, it was a big hit. 😋

      I heat up my enchilada sauce in a pot, then dip each tortilla in the warmed sauce before filling and rolling. Makes them much more flexible and works great with any brand of corn tortilla I’ve ever tried.

    Looks so good! Could I assemble these the day before bakinh? Or would you recommend baking tight after assembly and then reheating the next day?

        We prepped up to pouring sauce and cheese on the rolled tortillas the day before, then added the sauce, cheese & baked this morning. Turned out great!

      Hi! Do you have suggestions on how to turn this into a freezer meal for meal prep?

      Thanks!
      Hannah

      PS. Love this blog and have used so many of these recipes! My husband and I have yet to find one we don’t like!

        Hi Hannah! We haven’t tested this out as a freezer meal, but here are some suggestions. Follow steps 1-3, and then freeze the prepped enchiladas. When ready to cook, you could either let them defrost and then, follow step four. Or, you could cook directly from the freezer, but you would need to extend the cook time. We’d also suggest using really sturdy corn tortillas (we love the ones from La Tortilla Factory) or, we’d suggest using flour tortillas. Corn tortillas can become mushy once they’re cooked after freezing. If you give it a try, we’d love to hear back!

    These were super good! I followed the recipe for the second enchilada sauce. I added cayenne to the spice mixture, along with some Cholula to the sauce after taking it off the heat. Yummy!

    Excellent recipes that you explain here, from today you have a new reader for your blog, with your teachings and this book (https://cutlinks.pro/OuH8LT) that I found on the net, I will realize my dream of having my own restaurant, thanks LINDSAY

      You should definitely try it!! There are so many ways to customize them and it takes less time than you think!! Especially if you used canned beans with other ingredients. I usually have filling left to meal prep stuffed peppers. Quick, healthy and easy

    This looks so good! I have wanted to find an enchilada recipe, so this was a nice surprise in my email today. Some members of my family do not like sweet potato or broccoli…so sad! But would you also roast the other veggies that you mentioned as an alternative?

  6. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Corn tortillas need to be softened before they are rolled, or they’ll break. I don’t understand how this will work without the quick fry and dunk in sauce to be flexible enough to roll and to hold the ingredients. Sounds delicious however.

    This recipe was delicious, just like all of your other recipes I have made. I am obsessed with your blog. For this recipe I heated up the tortillas in a skillet without any sauce or oil and they became flexible without breaking. Makes it easier to roll.

    No V V Supremo Cheese at Costco 😩 and online you need to buy large quantity and expensive. Good substitute?

    Hi! Can you please share what brand of sheet pan that is. I’ve been looking for a good non-stick sheet pan. Thanks!

    Takes some time to prepare the filling. Takes almost 30 minutes to roast the veggies. Takes some time to prepare the enchiladas. Takes almost 20 minutes to bake the enchiladas. I just hate these inaccurate prep and cook times. This is rather common. The recipe is good, as is usual. Thank you.
