Creamy avocado is the surprising filling in this cheesy enchilada.

Summer and Tex-Mex go together like margaritas and Fridays.

While it may not be Friday just yet, enchiladas are an anytime kinda thing. And they make every day taste like Friday, especially when they are stuffed with avocados, swiss chard and bell peppers and topped with a tangy tomato sauce and some creamy Manchego. With each passing bite you’ll forget that we still have five days until weekend freedom hits, but who’s counting?

Skip the greasy Mexican takeout and whip up some vegetarian enchiladas at home.

Mexican food tends to have a bad reputation of being fatty, greasy, heavy and, uh, did I say greasy? It’s truly unfortunate because most traditional Mexican food is none of these things and is instead filled with vibrantly fresh vegetables and big bold flavors.

These enchiladas are one such delicious way to make Mexican food good for you. While they do contain a fair amount of queso fresco, they are actually pretty healthy given that they contain a cauliflower filling and are topped with a cream sauce that is made creamy by protein-rich nonfat Greek yogurt. Like any Mexican dish, though, they do not skimp on flavor, making for a tasty and satisfying, slightly out-of-the-box meatless option.
