Food-spiration: vegetable enchiladas

I have to admit, I LOVE Mexican food; nachos, fajitas, quesadillas, Burritos, enchiladas the lot! Although it may not be the best type of food for your waistband, it is DELISH so below you will find one of my favourite recipes to cook. YUM!


Chopped onions

Chopped peppers

Grated cheese

Enchilada sauce

Fajita or Mexican seasoning

2 x corn tortilla wraps

½  pack of Mexican-Style rice

Thousand Island dressing


This is a very simple recipe to cook. For ease of buying you can also grab an enchilada making pack from your local supermarket which will have the sauces, wraps and seasoning included for you so all you need is your veg and cheese (budget around £2 for the pack).

Pop the veg in an oiled frying pan and sprinkle some of the Fajita/Mexican seasoning over. Fry and toss for a few minutes to cook the veg.

Pre-heat oven and grease a baking dish with a little butter. Put two corn tortillas on the table counter and add some cheese and spoon in the seasoned veg mix once cooked. Wrap up the tortillas and place them together in the baking dish. Pour the enchilada sauce all over the top of the wraps (be generous) and sprinkle some cheese over the top. Place in the oven and cook for around 10 minutes – or until the cheese starts to go golden.

In an oiled frying pan toss half a packet of Mexican-Style rice which you can pick up from any supermarket. Cook for a few minutes ensuring that you toss the rice continually (else it will stick to the pan).

Pop the rice in a plate, add a splodge of Thousand Island dressing and pop the enchiladas in once cooked and hey Mexicana!
