Easy weeknight recipe to prepare ahead. I just heat the tortillas for 20 seconds in the microwave and avoid the messy step of softening them in the sauce. (Just coat the bottom of the pan with a little sauce and pour the rest on top). I also keep some of the beans whole to give more texture and have been adding whatever green veggie is in season to the filling.
This recipe is a top five all-time family favorite. I've been making it regularly since it was first published in Cooking Light in November 2000. The recipe is delicious as written, although sometimes it seems like there isn't quite enough filling. The technique of softening the tortillas in a skillet with water and enchilada sauce is a great way to save calories without sacrificing flavor. (Often tortillas are fried in oil to soften them.) I also use this recipe as a template for repurposing leftover chicken and roast beef. Yum, yum, yum!
My whole family loved these - we made them exactly as the recipe reads. They have a little kick, but not extreme. We served them with yellow rice and a spinach salad. Delicious!
Very easy and tasty - perfect for a rainy fall day. The filling did seem a little bland to me though, so next time I'll add more spices and probably more chopped chiles. Definitely will make again!
This is a recipe regular. Pair it with a side salad -- it's simple, satisfying and flavorful.
Easy and delicious, and great for those later-in-the-week recipes that don't require just bought produce.
I doubled the filling, added frozen corn, and used flour tortillas. Also skipped soaking the tortillas and everything turned out great. This was surprisingly quick to make since there was very little chopping.
I really enjoyed this recipe, however, I did not follow it to the T. I cannot stand to puree anything, something to do with texture. I also used black beans instead of the white beans, and red onion instead of green. I also added some fresh tomato and chili powder. Next time I think that I will add corn or maybe some rice. You can definitely mix this recipe up a lot of different ways. My fiancÃ©e does not really care for Mexican and I love it, he actually enjoyed this healthy version, I look forward to making it more in the future.
