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!

What happened to the other sweet potato enchilada recipe? ????
It’s still on the site! Just search “enchilada”
Anooother winner!! Soo good. I always cook for my mom and dad who can be pretty picky but they again loved another one of Mia’s recipes! Such a healthy take on enchiladas. I made mine with no cheese, and honestly wasnt even missing it! Great way to sneak some veggies in there too, did 4 handfuls of spinach!
I made this the other night and my boyfriend and I loved it! It was pretty simple to make and literally tasted like it came from a restaurant! Plus, lots of added veggies, which is always a plus. Thanks so much for another great recipe
SO good and SO easy. Like really easy. When we don’t have cauliflower rice, we’ve simply added black beans and it’s delish. More mexican style dishes please!
Yay!! Thank you Anna!! Will def be making more asap xoxo
This recipe came out perfect!!! I substituted with yellow corn tortillas and it tasted so delicious! The taste was very similar to tamales! Very fulfilling and yummy. The whole family loved it.
So easy and packed full of flavor! My fiancé loved them and couldn’t stop going back for more. Another delicious recipe!
Just made these tonight! They were amazing! So simple to make and truly tasted so good!!
Really easy, tasty, and healthy. A good weeknight meal!
Made this for my boyfriend and I. He’s meto so we used low carb tortillas and it was delish, felt like a real dish for once!
