Hey guys, just over here counting down the days to our Mexican vacation. Yes, as I’ve mentioned, we’re heading to Mexico and I sure am excited. So I decided to switch things up from what I had planned and serve up enchiladas today. It’s my way of building up my excitement even more.
These came to mind after a round of fresh sweet corn landed in my fridge last week. And now that June is here, I’m already planning one new corn recipe a week from today through August. Yep, I’m also pretty excited about the summer produce.
Right now I’m all about the simplest recipes that require very little prep and/or time.
Sheet pan dinners are the name of the game. Their only downside is the use of the oven, but for me, it’s worth it. And to be honest, it’s not all that warm here just yet, so I really don’t mind. I love cooking everything all at once and on the same sheet pan too. It just makes life simpler and always turns out a delicious family dinner.
Here are the details
To make these enchiladas it all starts with a sheet pan. For all of my sheet pan dinners, I really love using a sturdy sheet pan like this one. You guys are always asking about my sheet pans, well these are some of my favorites!
To that sheet pan, add a few ears of fresh corn, poblano peppers, zucchini, sweet yellow onions, and lots of garlic. Now, put everything in the oven and roast it until those vegetables have just a little bit of a char.
Now, the rest goes pretty quickly. Remove the corn kernels from the cobb and chopped the vegetables. Then toss everything together with some salsa verde and cheese.
My preferred method to easily remove the corn kernels is to simply lay the ears of roasted corn flat on my cutting board. Then cut down the side of the cob to remove the kernels. Then rotate the cob and continue cutting and rotating the corn until all the kernels are all removed.
Now just bake the enchiladas up and less than an hour later you’ll have darn good (cheesy) enchiladas to enjoy!
They’re the simplest to throw together on a weeknight, and they really do scream summer!
