Veggie Enchilada Stacks


Veggie Enchilada Stacks | Simple Green Smoothies

Have you ever been to a restaurant and wished you could steal the recipe to make it at home? That’s exactly what we did with these Veggie Enchilada Stacks!

This recipe is based on a dish Lindsey Johnson (part of our rawkstar team) often orders at a favorite Mexican restaurant—so unforgettable, she decided to recreate it at home. We think you’ll love this combination of flavors and textures, and predict it will become your favorite, too.

You can find this recipe and more like it inside of Let’s Eat: Dinner Made Simple (Summer Flavors). It’s a four-week dinner plan that includes recipes, shopping lists, prep tips, and more to help you cook summery dinners that your family will love (including the kids) for four straight weeks.

Veggie Enchilada Stacks

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Main Course

Scale

Ingredients

  • 16 ounce jar thick green salsa (mild or medium)
  • 12 corn tostadas
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • 1 yellow onion (diced)
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 small zucchini (diced)
  • 1/2 cup corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese OR cashew cream (to get this recipe, keep scrolling down)
  • Fresh cilantro (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush it with a small amount of olive oil.
  2. Heat a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and let it heat for 15-30 seconds, until shimmering. Add the onion and bell pepper. Season well with sea salt. Cook, stirring frequently, lowering the heat if necessary, until the onions start to soften and turn translucent about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds, then add the zucchini and corn. Continue cooking until the veggies are just tender about 3 minutes more. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until they start to brown, about 6 minutes. Add a little water, if needed, to prevent them from sticking. Add all the vegetables back to the pan and stir well. Remove from heat, but keep them warm until you’re ready to assemble the stacks.
  4. To assemble – arrange four of the tostadas on the lined baking sheet. Top each one with about 1/3 cup of the vegetable mixture, 1-2 tablespoons of the green salsa, followed by 2 tablespoons shredded cheese. Repeat with another tostada, ⅓ cup vegetables, 1-2 tablespoons green salsa, and 2 tablespoons shredded cheese. Place the remaining tostadas on top of the stacks and drizzle each one with 2 tablespoons of the green salsa and 1/4 cup of the remaining shredded cheese.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese has melted and the edges of the stacks are golden brown. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve.

    I would give this recipe 10 stars (but I can’t fill in the stars)! This recipe is delicious! I could eat it every day. I don’t miss meat in this recipe at all and love all of these flavors together. I also added some avocado on top of mine.

    What do you mean by tostadas? Do you mean tortillas that have been fried or baked?

    Thank you,
    Janice

    Hi Janice,

    In many recipes the tostadas are fried. We’ve made a healthier option here, so we bake ours in the oven at the end of this recipe to add a little crisp and melt all that ooey gooey cheese!

    Janice, you can buy tostadas already made in the Mexican aisle at the grocery store. They are crispy corn tortillas that are flat.
