Catfish Enchiladas with Creamy Arlo Dofino Havarti

by Joanne on April 18, 2014


So far, the weather in Boston looks Purrrr-fect!

It’s a good thing as well since I’m expecting this year I’ll be out on the course a little bit longer.

This morning, I took my foot for a solo run, meaning no Zoey, no Shane. It didn’t feel that great.  When I pushed the pace a little, my calf started feeling funny and my leg went weak.  Now I’m in a conundrum as to which shoes to wear.  A.  Performance running shoe which the podiatrist put inserts in or  B.  More of a shoe which doesn’t have the inserts but has more padding. 

This year is a tough one since, due to the weather, I haven’t had the opportunity to run my few long runs with the clothes I expect to wear on Monday.  I’ve only done long runs in my winter shoes and performance shoes with inserts.  Wish I had just one more week to check things out. Just one more week to let my foot get that little bit more comfortable. 

Since I don’t have one more week, I’ll focus on food and not feet. Here is the Fish Enchilada recipe as promised.  Make sure to use the creamy flavors of Arlo Dofino cheese.

Using Arlo Dofino Reduced Fat Havarti cheese, the most amazing enchiladas were created in the kitchen of Apple Crumbles. Really! AMAZING!


Ingredients: – Serves 6 – 8

Catfish Enchiladas2

  • 1 1/2 lbs. of catfish, cut into 1" pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and a little lemon juice.
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 15 oz Fire Roasted Tomatoes – drain slightly
  • 4 1/2 oz can diced Chilies
  • 1 1/2 cups of grated Arlo Dofino reduced fat Havarti cheese (or your favorite Arlo Dofino Havarti)
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • 4 green onions, chopped

*If you want to make fresh guacamole, simply use 1 fresh Haas avocado(mashed), 1 large vine ripe tomato(diced) , 1 green onion(chopped), cilantro,lime juice, salt and pepper – last 4 to taste. Mix all together and serve chilled with the enchiladas. For detailed directions on making fresh guacamole, see this link.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and cook the catfish pieces until done, about 4 – 5 minutes *depending on how thick the fillet pieces. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment and lay out the tortillas.

In a large bowl, mix the tomatoes, chilies, 1 cup of the cheese. Add the catfish pieces and stir.

Spoon out the catfish mixture over each tortilla and roll up. Align one next to the other. Top with any remaining mixture and then sprinkle on the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.

Bake for 20 – 23 minutes.

If your family is a “tough sell” for eating fish, try fish enchiladas or fish tacos.  Choose a mild or meaty fish such as tilapia or tuna.  It’s a good way to introduce fish into your family’s diet.

What tricks do you have to get your family/kids to eat something healthy?
