So, technically these are more like a chopped enchilada than a real enchilada.  There’s no folding involved (which is why I love these!), but these Stove Top Enchiladas with Cauliflower Rice have exactly the same ingredients as I would put in my regular baked enchiladas, and exactly the same taste.  Except, they’re 1000 times easier and you only need about 30 minutes.

I’m a Mexican food lover through and through and enchiladas are one of my favorite dishes to eat.  But, I don’t really love to make them.  My corn tortillas always break when I try to fold them so I have to heat each one up, then load it with ingredients, fold it and stuff it in the pan.  By the time I’m finished with the process way too much time has gone by and I’ve usually made a huge mess.

Enter these Stove Top Enchiladas!  You just chop everything up, put it in a pan and mix it together.  Same amazing enchilada taste, but with much less work.  They’re enchiladas for the lazy person, which is exactly what I am most days :)  

Cauliflower rice is one of those things that is so easy to make, yet I’ve never made it before until now.  You just run some cauliflower through a food processor and viola, you have tiny bits that look like rice!  It’s a great way to add more veggies into your recipes without being too obvious about it.

*To make cauliflower rice, place about ½ a small head of cauliflower into a food processor and pulse until it resembles grains of rice, 5-10 seconds.

    I can see myself eating a lot more enchiladas this way:) But I love corn tortillas, especially charred on the stove top… So I might just take a few, char them and slice them into strips and top a bowl of these enchiladas.

    These looks great! Curious which non-dairy cheese you used. I am diary free but have yet to find a cheese replacement I can stomach!

      Thanks! I use Diaya shreds. Have you tried that one yet? It’s not so great raw, but I really enjoy it melted!
