Kale & Squash Enchiladas (and a baby smile!)

June 6, 2012

Last night, I made some delicious veggie enchiladas.  It feels SO good to be back in the kitchen a little more.  This meal took about 25 minutes to put together (not including cooking time), and was really tasty. 

First, I made the enchilada filling with a little help from this sauce powder:



I used half of it to season the veggies (yellow squash, zucchini, and kale), and saved half to make a sauce to pour on top of the enchiladas.

Once the veggies were done cooking (about 15 minutes), I divided the filling evenly among four whole wheat tortillas:



topped the tortillas with sauce:


…and then finished it all of with grated cheese:


I baked the enchiladas for another 15 minutes until the cheese was nice and melted:


Done!  Delicious veggie enchiladas!


Delicious and (relatively) nutritious!

And, in other news—remember how I complained that we were having trouble capturing one of Lila’s smiles on camera?  Well, we finally got one!

I apologize for the poor quality—these were taken with Ryan’s phone! Our next goal is to capture a smile with our REAL camera! 🙂

Have a great Wednesday!

    Aw….gotta love a baby smile 🙂

    Those enchiladas look awesome – I love the Simply Organic sauce mixes – we use the guacamole one all the time, but I’ve never noticed the enchilada one before!

    I made some black bean and tempeh enchiladas over the weekend. I love the idea of the squash. Need to remember that one.

    For phone pictures, those are pretty good! And yum! I am a huge fan of enchiladas but I’ve never tried vegetarian ones with that veggie combo going on!

    I still need to make enchiladas one day….I really don’t think I ever have! Craziness.

    Lila has a beautiful smile! Thanks for sharing and making my morning 🙂
