Lately, it feels as if the weeks are whizzing by in a hazy blur of work, freelance projects, blogging endeavors, and holiday get-togethers with family and friends. 

My husband and I are busier than ever, and when it comes to stopping long enough to put dinner on the table, it helps to know I have some quick and simple recipes in my arsenal that I can rely on when time is of the essence.

Weeknight Cheese Enchiladas | Taste As You Go

One of the reasons why I like these enchiladas for a weeknight meal as opposed to a weekend meal is that I use canned enchilada sauce. Now, I realize these would taste infinitely better with from-scratch sauce, but when you're tight on time, you have to take the help where you can get it.

I used to be ashamed to admit that I use canned/jarred sauces because people just assume that, because I'm a foodie and a food blogger, everything I use in my kitchen is 100% homemade. But the reality is, I'm just as busy as the next person, so reaching for prepared sauces every now and then is no big deal.

I promise.

This recipe is extremely versatile, so you can change it up however you'd like in order to fit your personal tastes and preferences. Feel free to add shredded chicken, browned ground beef, or roasted vegetables to the cheese or to use green sauce instead of red. Honestly, there's no wrong combination here. The sky's the limit!
