As promised in my last Veggies You Never Thought You’d Love blog post, I present to you my tried and true Nomato Enchilada recipe! This recipe has transformed over the past year and only gotten better and better. As I even type about this recipe, I’m salivating! I’ll give you a little background info on this recipe and then let you have the big reveal.

There was nothing familiar on the menu and I gave my husband the typical deer-in-headlights panicked face of “what am I going to eat!?!” He suggested I try enchiladas. Whoa, that’s new to me. To make it worse, they served two varieties! Needless to say, as soon as I tried the red-sauce enchiladas I was sold. This recipe that you’re about to drool over is my attempt to recreate that delicious authentic enchilada I had over 6 years ago!

Although I love tomatoes and tomato sauce, it never ceases to amaze me that we hid SEVEN veggies into this one sauce that would normally just have a couple veggies in it.Read More
