Christine's Fancy Pants Almost-Vegan Enchiladas

Please do not be jealous and super impressed. You can't all be as dedicated in the kitchen as I am. I'm just way better than all of you. We must accept reality. So, here goes:

Christine's Fancy Pants Almost-Vegan Enchiladas


1 package of corn tortillas (30 ... or 36 ... whatever)
3 cans of enchilada sauce (we do mild, because we're a bunch of weanies)
3 bags of Veggie Shreds*

Preheat oven to 350. Take a pizza cutter and slice the tortillas into fourths. You can do this with about 20 at a time. You now have three "things" - tortillas, sauce and shreds. You will divide each "thing" into thirds. Then throw three layers into a 9 x 13 pan. Tortillas, sauce, then shreds ... lather, rinse, repeat.

Let it sit about 10 minutes so the tortillas can soak up the saucy goodness.

Put in the oven for about 20 minutes, til all is hot and melted.

That's what she said.

*Veggie Shreds contain casein, which is a dried milk protein, so they cannot be considered 100% vegan - although still a SUPER alternative to cheese*

I've done this with stale baked corn chips instead of tortillas except added meat and cheese because Hubby refues to eat fake meat (his words). Then I sneak it in when he doesn't see me....heehee.

yeah, veggie shreds cant be eaten in this home - allergies. we make ours w a home-made enchilada sauce, and black beans, and a can of green chiles, and some turkey meat. I was amazed i didnt miss the cheese - although I do slather it w soy sour cream.

Sounds awesome. Will totally try that next Mexi night.



ps. I might have to do cheese, cuz I don't know if anyone around here carries veggie shreds.

yes, but do they have gluten?

because this gal has decided to attempt to kick the gluten addiction (good grief, I'm nuts) - all because of the migraines, the traveling joint pain, the vertigo, the hypoglycemia, the concern that I might be getting rheumatoid arthritis or fibromyalgia, the sluggish thyroid despite the 16 years of synthroid, the polycystic ovaries and aging uterus (i'm only 35 but my uterus swears I'm 52)

you know, just thought gluten might have a contributing factor in those issues ...

so, are they?
gluten free, that is?
i'm on a need-to-know basis
