Unlike normal enchiladas, these Enchilada-Egg Stuffed Peppers don’t have any cheese or corn tortillas. They’re completely grain- and dairy-free, but they have tons of enchilada flavor! I used green chile salsa in this recipe instead of enchilada sauce. I also cracked an egg on top to add extra protein and flavor. (Plus, the egg looks cool.
