Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

I decided to make these a bit different this time around. I am going to put the rice in the enchiladas and the serve with a salad and plantains. For this recipe, you can purchase enchilada sauce or at the bottom I have included my enchilada sauce recipe. Do what works for you!

Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

10-12 flour tortillas
1 onion, chopped **Optional of course!
3c mild enchilada sauce (store bought or homemade)
2 (16 ounce) cans black beans (do not drain)
2 cups cooked brown rice (or white rice if you prefer)
1c shredded cheese
1. Saute onion in a bit of pam. Add black beans, then mash everything up. Now, add 1 cup of enchilada sauce, rice and cheese.
2. Fill the tortilla with your bean/cheese mix then roll and put in baking dish seam side down. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with cheese. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Enchilada Sauce
2 T oil
2 T flour
2 T chili powder (or hot sauce if out of chili powder)
1 (8-oz) can tomato sauce
2 c water
Dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Heat oil in pan, then stir in flour and chili powder; cook for 1 minute. (If using hot sauce, cook flour only for 1 minute, then add hot sauce with remaining ingredients) Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

*Makes about 3 cups sauce.
