Ingredients

Enchiladas

Cheesy Buffalo Sauce

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked*
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons water
  • 6 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • salt, to taste
  • optional toppings: avocado, green onions, cilantro, hot sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a large baking dish (about 10x7 or so) with avocado oil. Set aside.
  • Make the sauce. Put all the ingredients for the sauce in a Vitamix, high powered blender, or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl add shredded chicken, green onions, and 1/2 of the sauce. Mix well to combine.
  • Make the enchiladas. Add 1/4 cup chicken mixture to a tortilla and roll it up, placing it seam-side down in the pan. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Cover with the remaining buffalo sauce.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until warmed through. Top with toppings of choice.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

*Place cashews in a bowl. Cover with water. Let soak for at least 30 minutes or overnight (30 minutes if you are in a pinch).
