Squash Enchiladas (Edit recipe)

Squash Enchiladas have been a favorite of mine since childhood! I have wonderful memories of my Firefighter dad making us meals on his days off. I've tweaked our recipe from my youth to make it Gluten + Dairy Free but it is so versatile that you can easily make swaps for what YOUR family needs/loves! Check the notes below for swaps!

  10. Pour your Milk (*See notes for option) and Chile powder into the pan and continue to whisk.
  11. Once combined, add in 1 cup Monterrey Jack Cheese and stir until melted.
  12. Add 1/3 cup of the sauce to the veggie filling mixture and remove from the heat!
  13. Warm up your cast iron skillet with a drizzle of avocado oil
  14. Place each tortilla on the cast iron for 3-4 seconds per side to warm them and set aside.
  15. Add 1-2 Tbs of filling mixture to each tortilla, roll them and place in your 13x9 glass pan.
  16. Once all the enchiladas are rolled, pour the rest of the sauce over the top and smooth to cover.
  17. Cover with foil and bake 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  18. Remove foil and sprinkle the rest of the Monterrey Jack cheese over the top then back an extra 4 minutes.


**For the filling: You can use your favorite milk (we prefer Almond milk and my parents have always used Cow's milk) OR Chicken Broth is also an acceptable swap. **To make this sauce Dairy Free, you can absolutely use a Dairy Free cheese replacement instead of Monterrey Jack Cheese.
