Cedar Lane Quinoa and Vegetable Enchiladas - Product Review

I did something yesterday that I rarely do. I ate cheese. I know, I know...  but I admit that I do, on occasion, when my son isn't home. These Quinoa and Vegetable Enchiladas were calling to me, and I had to try them. 

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary sample from Cedar Lane to review.
I must be clear up front that this product contains dairy. It is gluten-free, yes. But the ingredients list includes milk, cream, sour cream, and multiple cheeses.

On the plus side, for those who are gluten-free (and not vegan or allergic to dairy) they are quite healthy. The enchiladas are made from corn, there are 12 grams of protein in a serving, and 7 grams of fiber, with only 340 calories. They would pass scrutiny from vegetarians, with the protein coming primarily from beans and quinoa.

This is as easy as it gets with heat and go meals. Take it out of the freezer, pop it in the oven for half an hour and you have a great meal for one (add a side salad) or a side dish to share. Most importantly, I was pleasantly surprised at how good they tasted. Perhaps it was all that cheese...
