Just had to share this awesome recipe that is inspired off a recipe from my Whole Foods App.
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Enchiladas
Trust me this is in incredible. I thought that it might be spicy with the amount of green chiles but it wasn’t at all. I topped it with avacado, sour cream & red salsa! Perfection!
Quickie Green Chile Sauce:
-1 Cup Vegetable Broth
-1 Tablespoon arrowroot starch dissolved in a little cold water/ or 1/2 Tablespoon Flour
-1 Cup chopped roasted mild green chiles (Canned)
-2 to 3 cloves of garlic, minced
-1 teaspoon cumin
-1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained
-3 or 4 cloves of garlic
-Fresh lime juice of 1 lime/ or canned lime juice (2 tablespoons)
-2 heaping cups cooked diced sweet potatoes (I peeled, diced & then boiled mine)
-1/2 cup chopped mild green chiles
-1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
-1/2 teaspoon chili powder
-salt & pepper to taste
-2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
6-8 corn or flour tortillas (I used 6 whole Wheat Flour Tortillas)
4 ounces or more of shredded monterey jack cheese
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Choose a baking dish large enough to hold your rolled tortillas side by side.
Make your Quickie Green Chile Sauce by combining the broth, arrowroot or flour, green chiles, garlic & spices in a sauce pan & heat over medium heat. Bring to a high simmer. Simmer until thickened. Taste test and set aside.
In the meantime, for the enchilada filling, using a mixing bowl, combine the drained black beans with minced garlic and lime juice. Toss to coat the beans and set aside. In a separate bowl combine the cooked sweet potatoes with the chopped green chiles, cilantro, spices.
Lightly spoon some of the quickie green chile sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.
To assemble the enchiladas, spoon the sweet potato mixture down the middle of the tortilla. Top with some black beans. Wrap and roll the tortilla and place at the end of the baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Top the rolled enchiladas with the shredded cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling around the edges. Then Savor!!!!
