7 Easy Enchilada Recipes for Busy Weeknights

It's time to wrap dinner up

These Chicken and Poblano Enchiladas with Pumpkin-Chipotle Sauce have a filling that's smoky and slightly sweet, a dish the whole family will love.

Enchiladas are a great option for busy weeknights — as long as you have tortillas and a few basic pantry ingredients, you're in the game. But you can make them really exciting in a number of ways. Customize the fillings by using a variety of meats (maybe even some of that leftover grilled chicken from the night before), vegetables (grilled poblano peppers, anyone?), and fresh herbs and spices. To help speed you on your way, look for jarred enchilada sauce in the international food aisle at the grocery store. And to up the health quotient, use whole-wheat tortillas instead of flour or corn for that extra boost in fiber.
