We've been eating enchiladas like crazy up in here over the past few months. I love how easy and delicious and healthy they can be (with the right ingredients).
Here's what you need:
1 can green enchilada sauce
1 bell pepper
1 Tbsp. EVOO
***2 cups of protein - we usually do beans, but this time we used steak.
4 flour tortillas
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 cup (ish) of salsa
1/2 cup (ish) of sour cream
1/4 cup (ish) of chopped cilantro
1 can diced green chiles
1. Sautee peppers, onion, garlic and protein (if it's meat, make sure it's already cooked) in the EVOO until onions are transparent.
2. Mix together salsa and sour cream in a bowl, as well as about 1/4 of the enchilada sauce, add the diced green chiles - don't drain
3. Add sauteed veggies and protein to the bowl - don't drain the juices, just mix it all together, then stir in the chopped cilantro
Just cover the pan with foil, and cook for about 35 minutes. If the tortillas are moist, then they're done.
***Like I said, we usually go with beans; 2 cans of pinto or black. You can also do refried, I guess. To prepare the pinto/black beans, I sautee them with garlic and a few drops of tabasco sauce. We had left-over cooked steak, so I used that this time- I just cut it into small cubes and didn't do anything else with it. Chicken is the same way - either cube it or shred it.
If you try this, let me know! I'd love to hear how your family enjoyed it.
