I know we’ve all been there. A certain is in aroma in the air, and all of a sudden, in comes the grand idea to make a hearty Mexican meal. After a few minutes of mental conversation, you decide you really want enchiladas, but you just don’t have the patience. Well, I’ve got the recipe for you!
Enchilada lasagna has all of the flavor and goodness of regular enchiladas but only 10% the hassle. I absolutely love this recipe because it’s simple. You sauté a few ingredients, you create layers, and you pop it in the oven. Simple! So simple in fact, it’s become one of my go to meals when I’m having company over. I’ve cooked this vegan meal for so many omnivores who are down right shocked that it is completely satisfying without any animal products.
Still not convinced? It tastes just as amazing, if not even better, as leftovers! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Cheers & happy eating!

I think I’ve mentioned that I am Italian so of course I LOVE pasta. During the holidays, my family eats lasagna, not just any ‘traditional’ holiday dish. My boyfriend and I also have a real hankering for Mexican flavors. When we visited LA this past year, I don’t think a day went by when one of us didn’t get something from a taco truck.
So how do you combine the best of both worlds? Easy. Make an enchilada lasagna. Many vegetarian recipes for this concept already exist online (but most call this a casserole); however, it’s a little harder to find a vegan version that lives up to your expectations – and that of your omnivore friends.
That’s why I’ve decided to share my tried and true version of this dish. The best part – it’s even better as leftovers or a pre-made dish made at the beginning of the week!
I hope you enjoy this recipe, as much as I enjoy eating it! Oh, and please feel free to share widely, just give me some credit or a link back. Thanks!
