Cheesy Veggie Enchilada Skillet Rice is the perfect easy dinner! Made in one skillet and done in less than 30 minutes, it’s flavorful and healthy!
As many of you know, Mexican food is my jam. I seriously love it. I love the flavors, the variety, the occasional spice….it’s the best. However, being a vegetarian really limits options when it comes to Mexican food. All the meat is usually substituted with cheese, and sometimes having a cheese filled enchilada is just too much cheese (sounds impossible, but true). This Cheesy Vegetable Enchilada Skillet has great flavor!
I really love having vegetable substitutions and am obsessed with spinach and black bean enchiladas. Yum. This meal was still so hearty and delicious.
This is a great meal for meatless Monday or for those times you just don’t want to spend extra money on meat. It’s really fabulous without it, and I know this Veggie Enchilada Skillet Rice would please even die hard meat eaters. You won’t miss the meat, trust me! It’s also great reheated!
Then all you have to do is add your cheese! Yum, super easy and delicious!
How to serve Enchilada Skillet Rice:
I served this skillet with a side of tortilla chips because we are a chip family, however it would be equally delicious with tortillas (omg delicious burrito filling!), on a salad, or just plain. It is seriously so delicious!
Lastly, if you don’t want to do the whole meat-free thing, just follow the original recipe I linked above! You can use ground beef/turkey/chicken, or whatever protein you want.
