Quick Summary

Stacked Vegetable Enchiladas- stacked enchiladas made with roasted vegetables, black beans, cheese, and enchilada sauce. These easy enchiladas are a family favorite and they are freezer friendly too!

Roasted vegetables are my favorite. I make a pan every single week to eat and to use in recipes. I love using roasted veggies to make these Stacked Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas.

I love stacked enchiladas because they are easy to make. You just layer the roasted veggies, black beans, enchilada sauce, corn tortillas, and cheese in a pan. You don’t have do do any rolling and each layer is loaded with cheesy vegetable goodness.

The enchiladas are hearty and have incredible flavor. This is a family favorite meal and the leftovers are great too! You can even freeze the enchiladas. I recommend making a pan to eat for dinner and one for the freezer so you have dinner ready for another day.

Enchilada Ingredients

  • Veggies– I use red bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, and onion! Feel free to use your favorite veggies.
  • Olive oil– for roasting the veggies.
  • Black beans– rinse and drain before using.
  • Green chiles– make sure you buy mild green chiles!
  • Spices– cumin, chili powder, and paprika
  • Garlic– use fresh garlic!
  • Jalapeño– remove the seeds before mincing!
  • Cilantro– so fresh!
  • Enchilada sauce– we like to use our homemade enchilada sauce, but store bought is fine too.
  • Corn tortillas– we prefer corn tortillas, but flour will work. You might have to tear or cut the tortillas to fit in the pan evenly.
  • Cheese– I like Monterey Jack cheese for this recipe, but you can use cheddar or a Mexican blend.
