Gluten-Free One Pot Enchilada Pasta

Happy hump day, everyone! Allow me to help you get mid-week off to a great start with this delicious Gluten-Free One Pot Enchilada Pasta recipe that takes about 20 minutes to cook and as the name declares, takes just one pot to make!

The beauty about this one pot dish, aside from using just one pot, is that it also doesn’t require much chopping, if any. You can chop ½ an onion or you can buy pre-chopped onion from the store if you want a fully pour-and-cook kind of meal. You will, however, have to chop some toppings but that part is totally optional, and the topping choices are all yours.

I used Hatch red enchilada sauce in this recipe. It’s important to always check your enchilada sauce label, as many of them contain gluten as a thickener in the sauce. Hatch is gluten-free, of course! I also used their canned diced green chilies.

This is the perfect weeknight dinner that’s no fuss and doesn’t sacrifice flavor!
