I feel like there’s a plethora of delicious taco joints throughout Chicago, but I have a hard time finding delicious Enchiladas in the city. Maybe I’m just not going to the right places, but the more authentic places tend to not have the best vegetarian options for their enchiladas even though their sauces are phenomenal. They are always vibrant and flavorful.
One of my favorite “Mexican” dishes are enchiladas because of how saucy they are. I love a complex and spicy red sauce with melted cheese over it. It’s heavenly. Since I have a hard time finding mouthwatering enchiladas, I have decided to take matters into my own hands and cook them at home. The recipe I am using is based on https://cookieandkate.com/2016/vegetarian-enchiladas-recipe/. I love her recipes because they are very vegetarian-focused while still being flavorful.
If you try making any of these recipes, I would love if you could tag it on Instagram or FB @chivegfood!
I am a huge fan and a frequent eater of Mexican food. I find good at-home recipes to be quite rare, even when using meat. Shanti has distilled an absolutely breathtaking vegetarian enchiladas recipe that you’ll find yourself eating the entirety of at once if you’re not careful.
I made this for someone who hates beans and they loved it! It was a very flavorful dish and it’s perfect when you have more people too.
