Okay, we are going to take an omni recipe that includes chicken and cheese and turn it into plant based deliciousness!

The Mama Bella whole food plant based version has homemade vegan cheese combined with bbq sauce, and filled with micronutrient rich beans and veggies.

The Husband raves about these and says they are one of his favorite meals. These are very impressive. Great for dinner guests! My omni in laws love them. Serve with Spanish rice, chips and guacamole.

To make this meal gluten free simply use corn tortillas instead of wheat. You can even layer these enchiladas like lasagna rather than roll them.
