Veggie Enchilada Recipe

Veggie Enchilada Recipe

These are good if you are looking for a meatless dish. Made some for friends recently and they asked for the recipe. I decided to post it here too. Enjoy!

1 can (10 oz) mild enchilada sauce (I like to use the green chili kind)

1 cup sour cream

1 tablespoonPure Olive Oil

1 medium onion, chopped (1/3 cup)

1 green pepper, chopped (1/3 cup)

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh baby portabella mushrooms

1 box (9 oz) frozen spinach, thawed, squeezed to drain

1/3 cup chopped drained roasted red bell peppers (from 7.25-oz jar)

2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix (from 1.25-oz package)

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

8 flour tortillas (Use the large size)

1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese to put on top


1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with Non-Stick Cooking Spray.

2. In 1-quart saucepan, heat enchilada sauce and 1 cup of the sour cream over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until warm. Spread 1/4 cup of the sauce mixture on bottom of baking dish. Set aside remaining sauce.

3. Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, green pepper and garlic; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender. Stir in mushrooms; cook 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender.

4. Transfer vegetable mixture to food processor bowl with metal blade. Add spinach, roasted peppers, taco seasoning mix, the cumin and 1 cup pepper jack cheese and 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses 3 to 6 times or until mushrooms are coarsely chopped.

5. Spoon 1/3 cup vegetable filling down center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas; place seam sides down on sauce in baking dish. Pour remaining sauce evenly over tortillas; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pepper jack cheese. Spray sheet of foil with No-Stick Cooking Spray; cover baking dish tightly with foil, sprayed side down.

6. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Who is Stratomatic?

My photo
Stratomatica - is my blog place where I document things happening around me or that interest me. The name Strata, geologically speaking, are layers of sedimentary rock or soil with internally consistent characteristics that distinguish it from other layers. Too deep? Well, I like guitars. Mostly I like the sound and feel of Stratocasters.
