Amys Black Beans and Vegetables EnchiladaI can’t find my favorite enchiladas from CedarLane anymore 🙁 So when I came across Amy’s Black Bean and Vegetable Enchilada, I had high hopes that I had found a replacement.

Amy uses organic tortillas filled with organic vegetables, which includes zucchini, yellow corn and onions. Accompanying the veggie medley are black beans, tofu, olives, bell peppers and green chiles. Topping the whole enchilada(s) is a Mexican sauce with a mild-to-medium kick and a sprinkling of chives. It’s not bad. Unfortunately, these don’t fill the emptiness I have for healthier enchiladas.

This pales in comparison when you’ve had CedarLane’s Garden Vegetable Enchiladas. Now that I can’t find it … my current go-to healthier Tex Mex frozen dish is CedarLane Three-Layer Enchilada Pie.

Like CedarLane, the nutrition facts cover one enchilada and there are two servings per box. C’mon. Who’s going to eat just one enchilada when they both come in one box?

Although this is dairy free, cholesterol free and gluten free, it may not be safe for people with food allergies. The box says, “This product is made in a facility that processes foods containing wheat, milk, tree nuts and seeds. Amy’s Kitchen does not use any peanuts, fish, shellfish or eggs in a facility that processes wheat. I don’t know if if it be 100 percent sure that no trace of gluten gets into the product.)

Verdict
