Delicious roasted veggies overflow in these enchiladas.
- 1 small zucchini or yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 small red onion, roughly chopped
- 1 small sweet potato, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets
- 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, quartered
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- fine sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups red enchilada sauce, homemade or store-bought
- 8 whole wheat tortillas
- 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 3 cups Mexican-blend shredded cheese
- garnishes: fresh cilantro, avocado, Mexican crema or crumbled cotija cheese
- Prep oven. Heat oven to 400°F.
- Roast the veggies. Add the squash, bell pepper, red onion, sweet potato, cauliflower and mushrooms to a large sheet pan. Drizzle evenly with the oil and toss until evenly coated. Spread the veggies out in an even layer and season generously with salt and black pepper. Bake for 30 minutes or until the veggies are tender. Transfer pan to a wire baking rack and reduce the oven heat to 350°F.
- Prep the baking dish. Spread 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce evenly along the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Set aside 1 cup of the shredded cheese to reserve for later.
- Assemble the enchiladas. Lay a tortilla on a flat work surface. Spread 2 tablespoons enchilada sauce over the top of the tortilla, then add a 1/8-portion of the roasted veggies, black beans and shredded cheese in a line down the center of the tortilla. Roll up the tortilla and place it seam-side-down in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Spread the remaining enchilada sauce evenly over the top of the enchiladas, and sprinkle evenly with the reserved shredded cheese.
- Bake. Bake for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Serve. Serve immediately, garnished with your desired toppings, and enjoy!
Amen to this! I was anti veggie for so long, but now I have to have them!
Ali, these veggies scream rainbow of Mexican-inspired roasted veggie goodness! I’m continually trying to sneak veggies into my husband’s food (mwhahaha!) but I have zero doubt that even he would love these. I can see these beauties in our dinner future. Thanks for sharing!
YES!! That’s all.
I absolutely love roasted veggies! They really are a treat and so easy. I like to mix it up and experiment with different seasonings & herbs, but sometimes just salt and pepper is the way to go. I never thought to make enchiladas with them. I’ll have to try this one soon!
I have always loved veggies but certain ones have grown on my in the last few years. I love everything about these!
So I now this might sound crazy, but I would choose vegetables over meat any day! I LOVE them. Like it is weird how much I love them! these look so good!
I could just eat that entire pan of veggies! YUMMM! and in enchiladas, even better. :)
I love how colorful the veggies make this! These enchiladas sound amazing and I’m definitely going to have to make them… BOOKMARKED!
I’m on a veggie kick. We had cauliflower stir fry last night. These sound fantastic, Ali!
I’m with you on the roasting bit…it makes all veggies better!!! These are some gorgeous enchiladas, Ali!
Most gorgeous enchiladas ever! That last photo is especially stunning!!! I love roasting veggies and am currently OBSESSED with roasted cauliflower… with just coconut oil, salt and pepper. I could eat the whole pan!
LOVE roasted veg..seriously the oven does some amazing things! My husband and I were JUST talking about how amazing it is to roast peppers and tomatoes…who wudduh thought?
I’ve actually always loved most vegetables, much to my parents’ delight! I actually enjoy healthy foods like this as much as treats! I’m in love with roasting them, however, because it just makes them even better. My kids will almost eat any vegetable when I roast them! Your enchiladas look fabulous!
What a healthy dinner idea!
I love roasted veggies too, these enchiladas look incredible!
Love roasting veggies. I roasted beets for my husband before we were married and I think that was the moment I won him over. He always *hated* beets until that day. Love this recipe Ali.
These look fabulous!
I know what I’m making this weekend. This meal looks fantastic. I’m such fan of roasted vegetables. Even veggie haters often like them.
I am a sucker for roasted veggies too!
I agree, roasting is a total game-changer! I rarely make my veggies any other way :) These enchiladas sound amazing, they’d be a great lunch during the week!
Roasted Veggies have been my best friend in college – it’s probably the healthiest “snack” I ever make heehee. Now I can put them in enchiladas??? Ali this is BRILLIANT :D
I love everything about these enchiladas!!
Roasting makes all the difference, doesn’t it? Gorgeous!!
Love these and will be making them soon. Roasted vegetables give such a nice flavor to anything! Thanks for sharing. :)
oh my goodness, the more I get to know you the more I am convinced that we are the same person. I never even ate broccoli until Cade and I were getting married! What was wrong with me?!
Okay, these look amazing. I’m going to crave these until I make them…which I’ll be doing in the near future. They look wonderful!
My dear, I’m still fighting with it. I want to love them, but somehow fruits win. But roasted vegetables are better. Much sweeter. Beautiful recipe.
Roasted veggies are so delicious and this is so gorgeous!
I love roasted vegetables so much, and enchiladas! This looks fantastic :)
Roasted vegetables are my favorite – what a great idea to put them in an enchilada! Yum!
I want these for dinner tonight!!
I used this recipe the other night, substituted a couple veggies for what I had and they were amazing!!!! Thank you!
Is it possible to freeze the leftovers?
What instructions do you have for reheating?
Can’t wait to try this tonight! (:
Yes, you can freeze the leftovers. I recommend reheating in a 300 degree oven until warm, but you can also reheat in the microwave. Good luck!
I have to say, These are a favorite in my house. My husband inhales them and there are NEVER leftovers! These are sooooooooo goooooooood! We made them at least a few times a month! Thank you :)
Thank you Kristy, that’s great to hear! We’re thrilled you guys like them. :D
My family all love these and often request them. Leftovers never seem to last the night.
Yay, that’s awesome Jenny, thanks for sharing! We’re happy you guys enjoyed them. :)
Just made this dish – it is delicious! Two housemates commented on the aroma in the house as the vegetables roasted. It looks and tastes like I spent so much time slaving away at these – yet it was a totally doable weeknight dinner. Added to my favorites!!!
Yay, we’re so happy these were a hit Alyssa — thanks for sharing! :D
Yummmmmmm! Made for dinner tonight.
Fun, festive, colorful dish! Only I made two major changes – first, this recipe has NO GARLIC! I added 6 cloves halved to the pan of veggies, and 4 cloves minced fresh to the enchiladas. Second, I seasoned the beans with onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder and salt and pepper before adding to the enchiladas.
