Stacked Garden Enchiladas with Fresh Oregano and Cilantro

Total Time: 1 Hour | Yield: 6-8 Servings

These enchiladas are jam-packed with fresh veggies like kale, spinach, and charred corn, but they’re also decadent and rich with salty feta, creamy cheddar, and a flavorful red chile sauce. And instead of going through the tedious process of dipping and rolling tortillas, these are stacked layer upon layer—more like a lasagna than an enchilada—to create a New Mexican meal you won’t soon forget.
