This is a quick and delicious way to eat enchiladas without all the fat and calories. You can substitute any veggies you like or have on hand. My daughter loved them and wanted the leftovers for dinner the following night. I used all organic ingredients, except for the enchilada sauce, they did not carry it at my health food store. Next time I will make my own enchilada sauce and post my results. I also blended a can of whole tomatoes (drained) with the enchilada sauce in my vitamix to cut the hotness for my daughter. She thought the mild sauce was too spicy, I personally like it a bit hotter but it was delicious and great for the whole family. To serve as a complete meal you can top the enchiladas with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado and a dollop of sour cream. Delicious!!!
- 1 (28 ounce) can enchilada sauce
- 12 corn tortillas
