With school starting, we are all looking for quick, yummy recipes to make for our families.  This Veggie Enchilada Skillet meal is just that!  Grab your little chefs, and have them help you with the chopping, measuring and stirring!

Once you try this Veggie Enchilada Skillet that is made on your cook top, you’ll be glad you didn’t spend the extra time ‘forming’ the enchiladas & waiting for them to bake! They’re made with an easy to make red enchilada sauce (but you could totally use a can of already made enchilada sauce) and stuffed full of summer veggies and crispy, pan-fried tortillas. If you’re looking for a delicious, one pot, crowd-pleaser dinner recipe, this is it!

You can watch us make this recipe here:

Also, this recipe would work as a party dip.  Leave the tortillas out of the main dish and serve with tortilla chips.
