I have always been a sucker for a good enchilada. I mean- who doesn’t love a warm gooey tortilla stuffed with meat and cheese and lathered with red sauce? Sign me up!
So, as Ted and I have been trying to stay on the healthy eating wagon during our week day meals I figured I’d make us some healthy enchiladas! Ya’ll know how I feel about Mexican food after all.
So here’s my take on a healthy enchilada! And as always- if you make them at home, tag me on Instagram so I can see them! @Kburg21
Here’s what you’ll need:
½ lb lean ground beef
¼ cup onion chopped
½ zucchini diced
½ cup frozen corn
½ cup diced grape tomatoes
1 can Old El Paso enchilada sauce (I like the medium one)
4 Tumaro’s carb wise wraps
Taco seasoning (I like FreshJax)
¾ cup shredded Sargento Mexican Cheese
A dash of Twang Chile lime seasoning
First, brown the ground beef in a skillet on medium and season it with your taco seasoning. Once it’s cooked toss the ground beef into a bowl and throw the onions and zucchini into the skillet for 3-4 minutes with some sunflower oil -just enough to soften them.
In a non-stick pan pour ¼ of your can of enchilada sauce into the bottom (just enough to cover the pan).
Now it’s time to assemble! Line the tortillas with the meat, zucchini, onions, and cheese and drizzled a tablespoon of the enchilada sauce inside each one before rolling them up. Roll the enchiladas as tight as you can and lay them seam down into the pan. Pour the sauce over the top of your enchiladas and top with cheese and a sprinkle of Twang Chile lime- them cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and broil for 3 minutes on high. BOOM. That’s it!
Hope you make them- and like them as much as we did!
