Mmm sideways enchilada! As you can see, I was still working with the iPhone's camera...
I served mine up with some corn and black bean salad and guacamole on the side.
I never really knew how simple enchiladas are to make! All you need are a good mix of veggies, tortillas, enchilada sauce, and cheese (optional). In mine, I used:
2 Bell Peppers (1 green, one yellow)
Red and White onion, minced
I sautéd them all up together with a splash of olive oil:
Then, I added some cumin, salt, and hot red chili powder, to taste. My aunt added a small container of cottage cheese to hers at this point, along with cheese, but I skipped that part.
I also used whole wheat tortillas.
I added cheese to Raine's enchiladas and left mine with just veggies.He also had cheese on top of his, while I topped mine with leftover veggie mix...
And then we covered it with foil and baked for about 15 minutes at 400* then uncovered for 10 more minutes.
Yum! These were filling and flavorful, and I did not miss the cheese at all! These have definitely become a go-to dish at our house, and if we keep changing up the filling, I can't see myself getting tired of these. I am thinking a sweet potato and black bean filled one will be next...
Do you like Mexican food? Mexican/Tex-Mex is my second favorite cuisine- Indian food will always be #1 in my heart!
