WHAT'S FOR DINNER? No Tortilla Enchiladas

Since losing 25 lbs since March, I've been searching and coming up with how to take some of my favorite foods and change them into a new recipe that's much healthier. Don't expect it to taste just like the enchiladas you grew up eating, but this way, I'm still losing weight and still eating good...It's just different.

I've heard that some of you don't like the sound of some of my recipes and others don't like a certain recipe or another. That's ok! We all have our opinions. I don't expect everyone to like everything I make. I'm just throwing out recipes that I make and that we like. 

I try out every single recipe before I post it. If I don't like it, it's not posted. If Ryan doesn't like it, it's not posted. 

serves 2-3

2 - 3 C cooked lean ground beef or bison
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
6 - 8 leaves of cabbage
1/4 - 1/2 C sliced olives
2-3 C tomato or pasta sauce
seasoning to taste
sour cream

Brown meat then mix in olives, cheese & seasoning. Set aside. 

Pull off cabbage leaves and place in microwave safe bowl. Pour in 1/2 C water and microwave for 3-4 minutes until pliable.

Pour 1/2 sauce into greased baking dish. 

Make enchiladas by putting meat mixture into each leaf and rolling like a burrito. Place in pan close to one another. 

Pour rest of sauce over enchiladas.

Cover with foil.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. 

Drizzle with sour cream, salsa, cheese or other.

What a great idea! I'm a vegetarian, so will use all veggies rather than the beef or bison, but I love the cabbage leaf idea! Can't wait to try it out. Thanks for posting!
