These come together very quickly, and are so yummy.
Grab a few items from the grocery store: vegetable Bouillon, a jar of Alfredo sauce, some great salsa verde, some cheese, some tortillas, cilantro, and a bag of frozen Mexican or fiesta blend veggies, and you’re all set for a delicious dinner.
I found two different bags of Mexican blend frozen veggies at the store. The one I picked up for these enchiladas was chock full of 16 ounces of different veggies with beans, corn, carrots, broccoli, and red peppers. The other blend I saw had some beans, cauliflower, and corn in it. Whichever blend makes you happy, that’s the one you want to use. These are just veggies. There is no sauce in the bag.
Oh, and there’s no need to defrost the veggies, just use them frozen. They will cook as the oven heats them up.
I love the fresh salsa verde from the grocery store. It’s delicious and spicy hot!
If you prefer to go with a milder salsa, grab one from the bottled salsas on the shelf, just make sure it’s labeled mild.
Or, you can try making your own salsa with my recipe for Roasted Tomatillo Salsa.

I love corn tortillas!
When I use corn tortillas for enchiladas, I always soften them by cooking them in a skillet first. This adds a little time to making the dish.
If you’re in a super big hurry, I’d suggest using flour tortillas and not frying them. Flour tortillas are more pliable, and therefore you can roll them without frying or cooking them first.
