You may recognize these enchiladas. They are featured on the cover of my Good Cheap Eats cookbook.

This is, by far, one of my very favorite meals in the whole wide world: Poblano Chile Enchiladas. Mmmm mmm. My husband and I don’t get selfish over too many things, but these enchiladas are worth fighting for.

In the old days when it was just the two of us, I’d make the full pan for the two of us, and we’d each get an enchilada allowance. No way could you eat the other’s enchiladas!

Today we eat fewer at a sitting and share them with the kids.

We’ve grown up. A little.

If you’d like to enjoy some of the best meatless enchiladas in the world, as well as a somewhat eclectic mix of yumminess, then this week’s FREE weekly meal plan is right up your alley!

It’s also pretty kid-friendly and very make-ahead, so warm up your printer or get your tablet handy!

  1. Well, well, well! We already had chili and meatloaf and the biscuits this past week!
    The leftover chili is turning into chili mac today with breadsticks.
    I am in for the mac and cheese and I might even try homemade pizza this week. Haven’t done it in ages but I have some homemade tomato sauce, chicken, and cheese in the freezer and some black olives and tomatoes to use up so we will have to give it a shot!
    The rest of my menu this week includes burgers, and some type of chicken enchiladas. Depending on the leftover situation breakfast for dinner and/or soup and grilled cheese could make an appearance.
    Have a good healthy week!

    I can’t wait to try your meal plans. These are by far the best I have seen on the web for my family. Thank you for putting them together!

  3. Michelle DeVries says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your recipes and meal plans with us! I am so glad I found your website, and I will DEFINITELY tell my friends! I am really excited to try the Poblano Chili Enchiladas. One question – do you have a recipe for the green sauce, or do you have a recommendation for a certain brand that you buy?

  4. I’ve just discovered this and am flatting with 2 other people while at University. Two of us have never really cooked before and having these amazing lists are so fun, easy and are teaching us to cook! The first 3 weeks were great and looking forward to the next like, 30 something! We certainly swap out some ingredients for cheaper stuff though, we’re a bit strapped on cash being students, but it sure beats 2 minute noodles!! Thank you so much <3
