More time at home means you're probably spending more time in your kitchen cooking meals for yourself or your family. This veggie-forward version of enchiladas gives you the flavor you love ... without all of the rolling. Enjoy! 

All you need:

  • 1 lb 90% lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, spiralized (~6 loosely packed cups)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can corn, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
  • Optional garnishes: Cilantro, avocado, plain Greek yogurt

All you do:

  1. In a large, deep skillet, cook ground beef over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes, or until translucent and soft. Add spiralized sweet potatoes, and cook for 10 minutes (they should have a bite to them, and not be completely soft).
  3. Next, add in garlic, black beans, corn, enchilada sauce, and half of the cheese. Stir until completely combined. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until enchilada
