Enchiladas

I got snowed in again last week! The snow started coming down so fast and heavy on my drive home that I was a little afraid I wouldn’t make it. It took me an hour and a half to make a 15 minute drive. Scary.
Anyway, I got home and didn’t have many ingredients on hand, so I decided to make these enchiladas. They were great comfort food for the snowy evening.

You need:
Tortillas
Olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
Half a yellow onion, sliced
1 cup shredded purple cabbage (or other vegetable you have on hand)
1 can of seasoned black beans
Cheese
Enchilada sauce (I used an 8 oz can of green enchilada sauce)

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Sauté onions and garlic until the onion starts to turn clear. Add shredded cabbage and cook till soft.

Oil a square baking pan and line up tortillas inside. I was able to fit 5 in my pan.

Fold up the ends of the tortillas and layer beans, cheese, and veggies inside. Then roll up the tortillas, pour the enchilada sauce into the pan, and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbling on top. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. It is hard to see the green sauce in the photos, but it is really delicious. It has a more mild flavor than the red sauce, more like tomatillos than tomatoes. One of my favorites.
