Craving some Mexican food, but hate the calories, fat, and artifical junk? Want something sinful tasting, but something you would regret? Look no further than Cedarlane’s Garden Vegetable Enchiladas! These babies are so good they only make you feel like you are eating at a Mexican restaurant, when really you are enjoying them from home!
Each Enchilada is made with organic beans, bell peppers and tortillas, is low fat, vegetarian, and gluten free. The enchiladas are wrapped in a yummy corn tortilla, stuffed with vegetables and cheese, and then layered with a “spicy enchilada sauce”. The box is a bit misleading, it shows 2 enchiladas all rolled up and good to go, but when you cook this meal you obviously can’t eat them with your hands. These yummy enchiladas require a fork and knife (and even a spoon to scrape up the leftover sauce!)
The corn tortilla tastes like the hard yellow taco shells you would get when eating out. I liked the outer layer, and i especially liked after it was cooked, the edges of each enchilada were a little harder/got crusty. It was yummy!
The vegetables inside were cooked nicely, tender and full of flavor. I didn’t care too much for the onion, however. There are a few pieces of onion that are crunchy and they are STRONG. When you take a bite and there is a piece of onion in it- you’ll know! The peppers add a nice touch, and are definitely responsible for the “spicyness” of the dish. There are also pinto beans with the vegetables, and i’m not usually a fan of beans, but there was just the right amount of them in the enchiladas.
Lastly, the sauce. One of my favorite parts. It’s savory, tomatoe-y, a tad spicy, but also sweet. It’s really good! I found myself running my finger on the carton after i finished my enchiladas to eat the remnants of the sauce. De-lish!
Overall, i would definitely get this again and reccommend it highly. It’s very satisfying and packs a nutritional punch with low fat, and high fiber/protein. Each enchilada is 140 calories, 3 grams of fat, 20 carbs, 3 grams of fiber, 9 grams of protein, and provides 20% of calcium needs. There are 2 enchiladas in the tray. My only complaint was that i wish it was a little more cheesy. I did get one REALLY good bite that had a lot of cheese, but other than that, there isn’t too much cheese flavor. Regardless- GET THIS MEAL!
