Pineapple Enchiladas


We usually have something Mexican-inspired every week at home... but I was getting tired of the same 5 or 6 ingredients all the time, even if they were in a taco salad one week and over nachos the next. This meal is a great way to mix up your Mexican and give it a tropical twist! 

Whatever kind of tortilla you decide to use, I'd recommend buying non-GMO.  This can also be made a vegan dish by using vegan sour cream and cheese substitutes. Nacho Mom's has a great vegan queso.  :)

If you have some omnivores at the table, you can easily add some shredded chicken to their enchiladas and cook them in a separate baking dish.
