Enchilada Bake

Enchilada Cauliflower Rice Bake

Jump to Recipe

Craving enchiladas but looking for something a bit lower carb? Looking for a fun new idea for taco Tuesday? This easy enchilada casserole is perfect! It’s also so much easier than rolling up a bunch of enchiladas! To make this recipe super simple, use cooked chicken. It will come together super quickly. This reheats well and would be great for meal prep. Feel free to swap the beans for corn, if you aren’t a fan of beans. Or use your favorite beans if you don’t like black beans.

This dish is cheesy and so satisfying! It is a great weeknight meal since it comes together in under 30 minutes. You can cook this in a 9×13 in casserole dish, but a smaller one would probably work as well.

If you would like to make this dish vegetarian, swap the chicken for sweet potatoes or butternut squash.
