Veggie Enchiladas Suizas
- 6 Whole Wheat Tortillas
- 1 Cup Homemade Tomatillo Sauce See recipe below, alternatively, use pre-made salsa verde
- 1 ½ Zucchini Diced
- 1 Cup Mushrooms Roughly chopped
- 1 Cup Roasted Corn Kernels
- 1 Can Black Beans
- ½ Cup Onions Sliced thin
- 4 Cups Spinach Chopped
- Garlic Powder
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
Homemade Tomatillo Sauce
- 2½ Cups Tomatillos in Husk Approximately 18 count
- 1 Small Jalapeno For less spice remove the seeds
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- ¼ Small Onion
- Sea Salt
Optional for Topping
- ¼ Cup Cilantro
- ¼ Cup Avocado
- ¼ Cup Tomato Chopped
- ¼ Cup Vegan Shredded Cheese
For Homemade Tomatillo Sauce
- Peel the husk off of each tomatillo and rinse them with hot water, making sure to wash the sticky residue off.
- Drop the tomatillos into a pot filled with about 4 cups of boiling water. Bring the pot to a boil then reduce to a simmer, cooking uncovered for 10 minutes. (Make sure they don't overcook and burst.)
- As the tomatillos soften, roast the jalapeno and onions over an open flame or oven-roast for a few minutes. You can also skip this and add them straight into the blender unroasted.
- Gently scoop the tomatillos out with a spoon and add them into a blender with the jalapeno, garlic, onions, and two large grinds of salt. Blend into a puree then set aside until you are ready to assemble the enchiladas.
For Veggie Enchiladas Suizas
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Lightly oil a large skillet and toss in the zucchini, onions, and mushrooms. Season with garlic powder and salt, then saute for a few minutes until they are cooked through. Turn off the heat and stir in the raw spinach and pre-cooked corn and black beans.
- Cover the bottom of a large baking dish with a few spoonfuls of tomatillo sauce.
- Assemble veggie enchiladas. Spread a few spoonfuls of the sauteed veggie mix onto a tortilla, roll it into a tight enchilada wrap, and place in the pan. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, saving some of the veggie mix for topping.
- Pour the tomatillo sauce over the enchiladas then sprinkle them with a handful of vegan cheese. Bake covered with foil or uncovered in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Remove enchiladas from the oven and top with the remaining veggie mix, tomatoes, cilantro, and avocado. Serve hot.
