1 (15 oz) can no salt added black beans rinsed and drained
1 can of Enchilada sauce (mild medium or hot)
All natural 6″ corn tortillas
1 whole raw onion chopped
1/2 cup wheat bread crumbs
1 tbsp dried oregano
1tbsp dried basil
1 – 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil first cold pressed
2 – 4 cloves raw garlic chopped fine or ground with a molcajete
Optional: Hot sauce to taste
Optional: Jalapeno chopped fine or ground with a molcajete
Put black beans in a bowl and mash with a potato masher. Then stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Poor half a can of Enchilada Sauce into a baking pan spreading out evenly. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the black bean mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas and place seam-side-down in the baking dish. Poor the other half of the Enchilada Sauce over the tops of the Enchiladas. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 – 20 minutes. Save the left over Black Bean Mixture later for some Black Bean VEGAN burgers 😉
