So when I was down and out following Ruby’s birth and my kidney stone surgeries, one of my favorite people in the world came and spoiled us rotten with THE  best, veggie-packed dinner ever! We loved it so much, I had to share the recipe that Karlee discovered on Perry’s Plate Pinterest page! 🙂 Enjoy!

Stacked Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

What you’ll need: 

1 poblano chile, cut into matchsticks
2 red bell peppers, cut into matchsticks
1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 medium onion, halved and slivered
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen
3 T heat-safe oil like grapeseed or coconut
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and black pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 cups homemade or store bought salsa/pico de gallo
2 ounces baby spinach leaves (about 2 big handfuls)
9-10 corn tortillas, halved
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
sour cream and thinly sliced scallions (green onions) for garnish, if desired

What you’ll do:

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Lightly oil a large shallow roasting pan or rimmed cookie sheet.
3. Place poblanos, red bell peppers, cauliflower, sweet potato, onion, and corn kernels onto cookie sheet. Drizzle with a high heat oil like grapeseed or avocado oil. Sprinkle the cumin and minced garlic over top. Add a generous pinch or two of salt and black pepper, then use your hands to mix everything together….

    It’s mentions to heat at 425* but for how long? Should it be covered or uncovered? And with the halved corn tortilla… Does that get mixed in also with the hand tossing?

  8. Desiree Piter - January 15, 2014

    This looks So delicious Heidi! 🙂 This may be just what I pop in the oven on SuperBowl Sunday :). Thanks for posting!

    This recipe looks great!!! To Raquel (and anyone else interested) I plugged in the ingredients to MyFitnessPal, as 8 servings, and it came up with 256 calories, 25 carbs, 16 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, and 7 grams of sugar per serving. I didn’t include the sour cream or chives–since it was considered garnish.

    I look forward to making this dish this weekend!! Thanks for the recipe!

  15. linda - January 14, 2014

    Looks yummy! Thank you for the idea! I might add 2 cans of (drained rinsed) black beans to make it more of a heartier main dish, mabye in place of the cauliflower or sweet potatoes.

  16. Brittney Szabo - January 14, 2014

    Oh this looks so good. Going to have to make it! Nice to have good friends that can cook. We live with my mother(a multi-generational home) and share the cooking. My mom also enjoys eating healthy so we have a great time cooking together and enjoying each others cooking.
