Author Notes

This Veggie Enchilada is made with a variety of vegetables, red beans and flavorful homemade enchilada sauce. This recipe is very easy to make, healthy and full of delicious Mexican flavors. They’re so cheesy, with a filling of sautéed veggies like carrot, cabbage, broccoli, onion, arugula, red kidney beans, corn and some warming spices like chipotle and roasted garlic seasoning, dried oregano, ground cumin. The reason I love this recipe is that you can use any vegetable of your choice for the filling. I also used the homemade enchilada sauce to give this dish a fresh flavor. —dailyfoodhacks
