EASY Gluten-free Enchilada Recipe! This is our favorite quick and healthy way to make enchiladas plus they’re gluten-free and ready in just 30 minutes.
HOW is this my first official enchilada recipe guys!!! I am shook. And also obsessing over how good these turned out. Between mcjordO’s enchilada obsession and my passion for all things Mexican food – I am planning to make these basically everyday for the foreseeable future.
I love how easy these were to make. I always thought enchiladas would be so much more intimidating and time consuming. But that is so not the case guys. These are ready in just 30 minutes and even if you stink at rolling up the enchiladas and they fall apart (gluten-free tortillas are tough!), they will still taste killer because this flavor combo is out of this world.
You can of course use any ingredients you want here for meat and protein. So if you’d rather some beef or turkey or even more veggies and make it vegetarian – you do you boo!
I can’t wait to hear what you think of this recipe!!
