Welcoming November with Enchiladas Verde!

Well, it finally feels like “fall” in New Orleans! People are fully dressed in colorful sweaters, warm coats, and lovely fall boots. I haven’t been able to blog lately due to being on the road visiting family and working, but I’m glad to be back.  Now that November is finally here I decided to start off this month by making Enchiladas Verde. It’s a cozy meal but fairly healthy with all the veggies and light Verde sauce.  My husband and I both enjoy this meal garnished with sour cream and corn chips on the side. 

Enchiladas Verde Ingredients: 
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
½ purple onion
1 # ground beef
12 whole-wheat tortillas
1-8oz bag of Mexican cheese shredded
2 cans of salsa Verde

-Chop bell peppers and onion and sauté in a skilled with 2T olive oil. Once transparent add ground beef and sauté. Drain meat and veggies and place in a bowl. Season mixture with 1T salt, 1t garlic powder, and 1T pepper. To this, add the shredded cheese; mix this together and set aside. Spray one casserole dish with a nonstick cooking spray then begin placing the mixture in the tortillas. As they are filled, place them face down in the pan until full. Then add the Verde sauce over the entire dish. Place in a 350degree oven for 30 min or until bubbling around the edges.  Serve with sour cream and corn chips.
Fast and easy dinner for a cool and cozy evening at home!
Salute the goodness!
