Spiralized Sweet Potato and Apple Enchilada
We have a savory recipe today!! Duh…you can see the oozes of cheese and spices in your face 🙂 It’s Fall and we are jumping into comfort dish territory and I am uber excited for those yoga pants and blanket on the couch time. Also…sweet potatoes and apples?? Yes please!! This spiralized sweet potato and apple enchilada pulls together some of fall’s veggies (and fruit) into a mexican-inspired dish.
I recently got the new KitchenAid Spiralizer attachment for the Stand Mixer and I was excited to start making ‘noodles’ of all my veggies. If you have yet to make veggie noodles, it’s extremely easy with this spiralizer attachment. Equipped with multiple blades and peeler, you can peel, core and spiralize just about any vegetable you like (think zucchini, apples, sweet potatoes, peppers, squash). I just love how it makes veggies fun to eat in different ways!
As I was getting ready for my maternity leave, I was on the hunt for freeze-able meals that will also nourish us during those first few weeks. I made a black bean lentil chili, a chicken enchilada lasagna and this spiralized sweet potato and apple enchilada. By far this was my favorite as not only did it give me a chance to play with my new spiralizer, it was also beautiful (I love all the colors!) and easy to put together.
You simply layer corn, beans, spiralized apples and sweet potatoes, cojita cheese and more cheese, in between tortilla layers and spicy enchilada sauce. Warm, ooey-gooey melty cheese and an amazing blend of flavors. I’ll stop talking and send you over to the Kitchenaid blog, The Kitchenthusiast, for the recipe. Find the RECIPE here.
