Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
One of those easy, throw together dinners using what I had on hand that ended up so delicious, I had to share! These paleo-friendly chicken and cauliflower rice enchiladas or so tasty, and couldn’t be more simple to make!
This is definitely a new favorite dinner! These enchiladas are gluten free, can be kept dairy free, and are filling and nourishing at the same time. I could even see myself doubling this recipe to feed friends (if corona virus every goes away and we can have friends over again..)
These enchiladas are not a classic, authentic enchilada, I will admit! I used a jar of enchilada sauce that I had, because I was feeling lazy! I love this brand for enchilada sauce with healthy, simple ingredients. You could use green or red enchilada sauce or this recipe; whatever you have and love will work!
You can leave these without the toppings, but these were so delicious with some avocado chunks, shredded lettuce, and finely diced shallot on top. They would have been great with some fresh cilantro too, if you have some on hand!
I truly threw these together for the sake of using leftovers in my fridge. I had some shredded rotisserie chicken, a little baby spinach, and a bag of a cauliflower rice and bell pepper mixture on hand, so I just sautéed the veggies and tossed them with the chicken for a yummy filling!
If you have some other extra veggies on hand, you can definitely toss those in as well! You could also toss in some beans, or sub tofu for the chicken if you want these to be meat free!
Enchiladas are pretty easy to play around with and use what you have at home. I love that about them! A good way to use up scraps to avoid any food waste, too 🙂
SO excited to share this easy, delish, and nourishing meal. These enchiladas are simple to make with a lot of reward. I know you guys will love them!
