Sweet Potato Enchiladas

August 3, 2011

What you’ll need:

– 3 sweet potatoes, diced (I used Molokai Purples)

– 1 green bell pepper, diced

– 1 zucchini, chopped

– 1 small yellow onion, diced

– 4 gloves garlic

– 1 habanero (or any chile), diced

– 1 small bunch kale, cut into strips

– 1 cup of chopped cilantro

– 1 can of black beans

– 2 cups of salsa

– 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

– 1 tablespoon chili pepper

– 1/2 tablespoon cumin

– salt and pepper to taste

– 6 tortillas (I used whole wheat)

Ok, it seems like a lot of ingredients, but this recipe is really not difficult!

1) Boil sweet potatoes for about 15 minutes, until soft, then drain water

2) Heat oil in a large pot, add onion, garlic, and habanero, cook for 5 minutes

3) Add bell pepper and zucchini, cook for another 10 minutes

4) Add spices

5) Add sweet potatoes, beans, and 1/2 cup salsa, mix ingredients well

6) Add kale and cilantro, cook for 5 more minutes and remove from heat

7) Spread 1/2 cup of salsa on the bottom of a baking dish.

8 ) Lay out a tortilla, put some filling in the middle, roll it up, and put it in baking dish. Repeat until you have filled the dish.

9) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

10) Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the enchiladas, then top with the remaining 1 cup of salsa, making sure you cover the tops of all of them to prevent burning.

11) Bake in the oven for 25 minutes, take out and let cool for 10 min. and enjoy!

    These veggie enchiladas are excellent. However, they are really really good with some fish in them and smothered with Mae Ploy Sweet Chili Sauce. Then again I could put sweet chili sauce on cardboard and it would probably taste good. Needless to say these enchiladas are super tasty and fairly quick and easy to make. Give it a try, I promise you won’t regret it.
