ENCHILADAS CASSEROLE – healthy every-meal recipe, filled with fiber, protein and greens.
Dishes that can be eaten any meal are pretty awesome! Now that I am going back to school and that I’ll be even more busy, meal prep on Sundays is gonna be key. This enchiladas casserole is the kind of casserole dish I’ll make to make sure we have a good nutrient intake.
This enchiladas casserole dish has protein thanks to the beans and is high in fiber thanks to the tortilla. The spices add lots of flavors to the mix and the nutritional yeast gives this much loved cheesy aftertaste.
I used Siete Foods almond and cassava flour tortilla in this recipe but feel free to use pretty much any you like. You can also use my chickpeas tortilla recipe here.
