These enchiladas are healthy, come together rather quickly and are packed with all of the tasty Mexican flavors. I also made sure to include a little bit of everything: protein, beans and greens. Make these during the week when you are busy yet, still want a wholesome meal or make them over the weekend for a delicious meal prep that will leave you with a week worth of meals. Regardless, I bet you that you will be licking your plate clean every time!
Saucy, cheesy, tangy and tasty...all words that perfectly describe this dish full of beautiful perfectly baked enchiladas. Siete is one of my favorite brands and let me tell ya, they came in clutch for this recipe!
If you love the flavors of chorizo, but aren’t necessarily a chorizo fan, this recipe is for you. You can eliminate the pork, replace it with ground turkey, eliminate the sausage aspect and make the texture into crumbles, all while still enjoying the savory taste of chorizo. Siete’ s seasoning is the key to making this all happen. I used ground turkey and seasoned it with their chorizo seasoning to create turkey “chorizo”.
Minus the cheese aspect of the dish, I still wanted to keep this rather healthy, so I made sure to include black beans and greens! These are verde enchilada after all. So, of course the extra greens was a necessity. Throw in some fresh spinach and cilantro, some diced green chilies and siete’ s verde enchilada sauce in the mix + garnish the top with fresh green avocado cubes and savory green pickled jalapeños and you have the most mouthwatering, healthy and tasty enchilada of all time!
I am typically not one to order enchiladas when dining out at a Mexican restaurant. I always felt that they were so heavy and blah. But, these my friend are a different story. I kept them light yet satisfying. The best part is that when making these yourself you can do everything to your liking! You have the power! You can stuff them to your liking, make them more saucy or less saucy and you can add as much or as little cheese on the top just to name a few.
What makes these healthier and lighter are not just the fresh and healthy ingredients, but even thought I am using off the shelf items for the seasonings and sauces I make sure that those too are healthy, preservative free and non-gmo. That way you can still indulge without the guilt.
