Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno diced, with ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup onions diced
  • 1 lb frozen cubed butternut squash
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 15 ounces canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 14.5 ounces fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup enchilada sauce
  • 2 ounces reduced fat cheese (I use Trader Joe's lite 3 cheese blend)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 8 reduced fat tortillas (I use Ole Extreme Wellness)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Heat olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onions, diced jalapeño and garlic and cook until onions are soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Add butternut squash, corn, tomatoes black beans and spices to skillet and simmer over medium heat until cooked through, about 7-10 minutes.  Do not over cook or the butternut squash will become mushy.
  • Take 1/2 cup enchilada sauce and spread evenly on the bottom of a 9x13 dish.
  • Fill each tortilla with a heaping 1/3 cup of prepared filling.  You can add a little cheese into each tortilla or use it all on top of the enchiladas, whichever you prefer.
  • Place all enchiladas seam side down in prepared baking dish and use remaining enchilada sauce on top of enchiladas.  
  • Top with remaining cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
