Fit Chic Enchilada Steak Bake

Tomorrow is Taco Tuesday.

I love themes and I keep them throughout the week in order to make my menu easy and efficient to follow.

I follow Crockpot Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Gourmet Wednesdays, Left Over Thursdays, and Fun Food Friday.

This a fun recipe the whole family will enjoy. The best part is it tastes even better leftover!

Ingredients:

1 red bell peppers, cut into long thin slices

1 green pepper, cut into long thin slices

1 28 oz can of green or red enchilada sauce ( I love green sauce)

1 6 oz can of diced green chilies

1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 small onion diced

3 T  coconut oil

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

2 garlic cloves, minced

salt and black pepper

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 cups salsa/pico de gallo

2 ounces baby spinach leaves

10 corn tortillas

1 lb of bite sized beef steak pieces

2 cups shredded raw cheese ( you can find this at trader joes, your local grocery store, and or Coop)

2 ripe avocados

1/2 cup of sliced green onions (for topping)

1 6 oz can of diced olives (for topping if desired)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large skillet place coconut oil, peppers, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper, onion, steak, cauliflower, and sweet potato and cook on medium to medium – high until steak is cooked to medium and onions are translucent.

Prepare an 9x9x2-inch square baking pan with nonstick spray. In a small bowl, stir the cilantro into the salsa. Spread 1/4 cup of salsa into the bottom of the baking pan. Add a layer of tortilla pieces, to completely cover the salsa. Top with 1/3 of the vegetable steak mix, a handful of spinach, and 1/3 of the cheese. Make a second layer of tortilla, salsa, vegetables, spinach, and cheese. Top with with a layer of tortillas, salsa, vegetables, and cheese and pour enchilada sauce over the top. Last top with diced avocado, green onion. Cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 10 to 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and everything is heated through.

Let it sit for 5 minutes and cut into squares.

Enjoy!
