Veggie Enchiladas are super healthy, super colorful, and full of flavor!
Seasoned, roasted vegetables, are wrapped in corn tortillas, covered in enchilada sauce, and baked until bubbly. Vegetarian Enchiladas are a quick and easy meatless meal that your whole family will love.
VEGETABLES Veggie enchiladas are chock full of healthy veggies like cauliflower, bell pepper, and zucchini, but we seasoned them and roasted them to bring out their best flavor. Add your favorite veggies based on what you have in your fridge.
SEASONING To keep it simple we use homemade taco seasoning for the vegetables. You can use your favorite seasonings or even just salt & pepper.
TORTILLAS Corn tortillas are best for enchiladas. Be sure to heat them so they don’t crack. I heat them on the grill or directly over the flame of a gas stove for a few minutes.
CHEESE This recipe uses pepper jack cheese since it’s easily available but feel free to try different kinds of cheese like cotija!
- Line tortillas with fresh spinach leaves before adding the veggies for a little extra color, flavor, and nutrients!
- We also like sautéed sliced mushrooms, diced onions, or a can of diced tomatoes, or even a can of green chilis.
- For an extra protein boost, add a can of drained and rinsed black beans and some brown rice!
- Veggie enchiladas are a great way to use up leftovers like other veggies, rice, or scrambled eggs.

Perfect Enchiladas Every Time
- When making enchiladas, heat the corn tortillas before rolling so they don’t crack.
- Cut veggies the same size so they roast at the same rate.
- Keep leftovers covered in the refrigerator and they will last about 4 days. Enchiladas can be reheated in the microwave or oven.
- Or, make a vegetarian enchilada soup by placing roasted vegetables in a pot with caramelized onions, salt & pepper, taco seasoning, and a can of tomato soup. Add some salsa, vegetable broth, then heat and serve with shredded cheese and tortilla chips on top!
