IMG_2127

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of organic black beans (or pinto)
  • 1/2 a can of enchilada sauce
  • 1 can diced black olives
  • daiya vegan pepper jack cheese
  • 6 corn tortillas (mine are gluten free)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Drain and thoroughly rinse beans
  3. Put beans in a medium bowl and mash with a fork
  4. Stir in the olives
  5. Fill one tortilla at a time with bean and olive mixture and a sprinkle of cheeseIMG_2131
  6. Roll up and place in a baking dish (because I don’t fry the tortillas in oil like traditional enchilada recipes the tortillas might break open, microwaving the tortillas first will help with this, but I don’t mind so I skip it)
  7. After the baking dish is full, cover with enchilada sauce and sprinkle more cheese on top
  8. Cover the dish, if your baking dish doesn’t have a lid just use foilIMG_2136
  9. Bake for 15-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling

I served mine with chopped organic romaine lettuce, half an avocado, and tapatio hot sauce. So yummy!!! This is a great basic recipe that can be easily modified. I have made a larger batch using 12 tortillas, the whole can of sauce, and one can black beans and one can pinto beans, but that was when I had company… I cant eat 12 enchiladas on my own! Adding veggies, herbs, or using green enchilada sauce are easy changes to this recipe. Enjoy!
