Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. Today it's a saucy favourite - enchilada recipes!
There's not doubt about it, enchiladas are a crowd pleaser. And what's not to love? There's tortillas, sauce and lots of cheese! You can fill them with whatever you like - they're a great way to reduce food waste, use leftovers and be kind to your food budget!
Kids and adults alike seem to love them making the a family dinner everyone can agree on. They're messy and delicious - you can make them with meat or tweak them to be vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free - the sky's the limit! And on that note, we've rounded up 9 different takes on the enchilada - many of which are vegetarian friendly or can be made vegetarian friendly. Enjoy!
1. Chicken Enchiladas
by Food Mamma
Food Mamma loves combating food waste and she uses leftover rotisserie chicken to make her delicious Chicken Enchiladas (and then turns the bones into stock). Enchiladas are a great way to use up leftover proteins.
2. Enchilada Quinoa Casserole
We're big fans of easy, one pan meals around here which is why we love this Enchilada Quinoa Casserole from My Kitchen Love. It's also a great Meatless Monday dish!
3. Vegetarian Green Chile Enchiladas
by How To Eat
These Vegetarian Green Chile Enchiladas from How To Eat get the bulk of their protein from mushrooms and yogurt. And they're kid tested and approved!
4. Spot Prawn and Raja Enchiladas with Creamy Buttermilk Sauce
These may look like tacos but don't be fooled. Diversivore's Spot Prawn and Raja Enchiladas are just that - enchiladas! Enchiladas can be served rolled or flat - it's the chili sauce that makes them an enchilada! Isn't it freeing to know you don't have to spend the time rolling tortillas to make enchiladas?
5. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas
These Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas from My Sweet Mess offer up a twist on the usual enchilada recipe. If you love sweet potatoes you will love this recipe!
6. Mexican Chili Beef Enchiladas
Slow the Cook Down's spicy beef and made from scratch enchilada sauce are what takes these Mexican Chili Beef Enchiladas up to the next level with flavour.
7. Healthy White Chicken Enchiladas
If you're cooking on a budget then Delicious on A Dime is a site you have to check out. Their Healthy White Enchiladas are a crowd favourite and they're friendlier to your grocery budget!
8. Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas
These Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas from Old Cut Kitchen pack an extra protein and fibre punch with the addition of white beans. They're also work just as well with turkey so they're a great way to use up leftover holiday turkey dinners!
9. Easy Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas
by Bite Me More
And last but not least, these super Easy (and Cheesy) Chicken Enchiladas from Bite Me More are another saucy crowd pleaser.
