Oh yes I did.
This shiz will blow your cabeza. I cannot put into words how awesome this recipe was. Even Kyle was making googly eyes at it. I have a feeling I am going to be making this with the same frequency as Lindsay Lohan’s relapses.
- small green bell pepper (I used 2/3 medium bell pepper)
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 1 tbsp garlic (I used garlic gold nuggets)
- 1 tomatillo
- 1 can (2 cups) black beans
- 10 corn tortillas
- 4 oz. diced green chilies
- 1 tsp lime juice
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 28 oz. can of green enchilada sauce
- (optional) vegan cheese (I just sprinkled Daiya on top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add onion, bell pepper, and tomatillo to food processor and pulse until it looks like the below photo
Next add the drained and rinsed beans and pulse again until it’s blended and mostly smooth, but still with some chunks.
Then add the garlic, cayenne pepper, and diced chilies.
Once the guts of the enchilada are blended, spoon reasonable portions into corn tortillas like so.
One by one, add them to a pan lined with some of the enchilada sauce…
All lined up!
If the tortillas crack, no worries, they will all bake together in the oven anyways, so just keep lining them up.
Pour more enchilada sauce over the tortillas, using a spoon to coat the entire tortilla.
Once they are reasonably coated in sauce, sprinkle some vegan cheese on top.
The recipe yields enough for 8-10 enchiladas depending on how packed you make them. So after I finished the first pan full, I started working on the second batch.
Then I popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let me tell you, the apartment smelled effing fantastic. The aroma literally had me salivating.
Not too shabby!
I had one right away (for poison control purposes of course), but the rest were put away for the weekend. Talk about self control. Arg.
Nope, not poisonous. In fact, it was mighty tasty. No. That doesn’t do it justice. It was 100% my dream vegan enchilada.
See that perfect spicy mexican bean medley bursting out. That’s the sh!t right there.
Not to toot my own horn or anything, but if any of my recipes are worth making, it is this one. I would never lie to you…just do it.
I feel sorry for our neighbors because I’m gonna be brawling with Kyle for these.
