Ready To Get Cooking?
I know you want to jump all over these vegan enchiladas, so I am providing the recipe below so you can make this super easy, super tasty dish for yourself. It is the perfect time to get cooking and utilize that kitchen of yours since we are all spending way more time at home due to the Coronavirus. I have been cooking every meal at home for 6 months now, and frankly, I am loving it. Especially since I can so easily find awesome recipes on #LunchBreakLIVE that are easy for me to make and always filled with flavor.
- 10-12 tortillas Corn or flour tortilla soft taco shells
- 1 small chopped onion
- 3/4 C chopped green pepper if desired
- 1/2 C chopped tomato
- 1 1/2 t chili powder
- 1 1/2 t cumin
- 1 1/2 t garlic powder
- 1.5 C vegan meatless crumbles
- 1 large can of enchilada sauce
- 2 C shredded vegan cheese
- 1 C shredded iceberg lettuce
- 2 T vegan sour cream
- 1 small can sliced black olives
- Preheat the oven to 350. Cook the onions, green pepper, tomato and meatless crumbles in a pan with a little water. Add the cumin, chili powder and garlic salt. In a fry pan (or 2!) spray lightly with non stick cooking spray. Gently warm/toast the corn tortillas. Do not overcook as the tortillas should remain very flexible. Add about 3/4 of the enchilada sauce to the cake pan. Add 1/10th (or if you're using 12 shells, 1/12th) of the mixture to each shell and wrap it. Place seam side down in the pan over the enchilada sauce. After they're all in the pan cover them with enchilada sauce. Cover with cheese and cook for 15 minutes.
- Garnish with lettuce, sour cream and black olives.
Refried Beans in an Instant Pot.
- 1.5 C of raw pinto beans.
- 4 C of water
- 1 C salsa
- 1 package of taco seasoning OR:
- 1 T cumin
- 1 T chili powder
- 1 t garlic salt.
- Cook on the "Manual" setting in the instant pot for 65 minutes.
- After cooking remove most of the excess water but not all so they get creamy. Mash with a potato masher. Add the salsa and stir in.
- When serving add a bit of shredded cheese on top if desired.
