Roasted Verde Veggie Enchiladas

Need a new and easy recipe to add to your meal plan? Try these delicious enchiladas that get thrown together easily and will have your taste buds singing praises!

I might be slightly completely obsessed with shopping at Aldi. These enchiladas are proof of that because lately, every Aldi trip has me coming up with a jar of the mild roasted verde salsa. If you’ve never shopped at Aldi, one it’s magical but two sometimes they rotate out foods and you’re not sure when or if they’ll come back. I got nervous that this specific salsa wasn’t going to come back so I buy it every time I go…now we have almost eight jars of it. Hah!

Just in case you do not have an Aldi near you, you can use an alternative salsa in this recipe. I would recommend a mild traditional, a peach, or spicy version depending on your taste preferences.

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin, puree use your left over pumpkin puree in a chili, smoothie or overnight oats

  4. When potatoes are done, add them to your mixture.

  5. Fill tortillas and layer them into a greased (cooking spray) 9×13 baking pan. You should be able to fit seven in one row and another four to five horizontally to fill in the rest of the pan. If you have a bit of your mixture left over, spread it over the top.

  6. Sprinkle the top with your remaining shredded cheese.

  7. Roast at 425 for 15-20 minutes or long enough for your cheese to melt and bubble.
