Sometimes I get a craving or a whim and I’ve just got to see what all I can find in my fridge/pantry to make it happen. This particular instance called for goat cheese and enchiladas. It all comes together with crisp poblano peppers, meaty baby bella mushrooms, and roasted tomato salsa. So many flavors that just seem to fit together perfectly for a simple but delicious enchilada dish that you can have bubbling away in the oven in no time.
I love traditional enchiladas a whole lot, but it’s great to go off the beaten path sometimes too! These were just as easy to make as it would be to brown up some beef or chicken and they were a big hit with my family. I foresee these becoming a regular on busy days in our house.
Simply saute up the veggies and melt the cheese to create the sauce. Bake it all off and dinner is done!Goes perfectly with some cilantro lime rice or another side of your favorite veggies. Even a crisp green salad would be great. An easy dinner for a busy night!
