Enchiladas are one of the best kinds of comfort food. They’ve got all the requisite ingredients to satisfy that meat + cheese + sauce craving, and give you the best excuse to eat sour cream and guacamole by the spoonful. In short, the classic beef and cheese enchilada is heaven on a plate. So why mess with perfection?

Sometimes it’s fun to give our favorite recipes a little overhaul, be it to sneak some nutritious ingredients in, like quinoa, or simply to incorporate a new flavor, like Buffalo sauce. Although they may not be standard to typical enchiladas, these ingredients put a new twist on a beloved dish.
