These crave-able Roasted Vegetable & Black bean enchiladas will spice up your weeknight meal routine. Full of vegetables and the perfect amount of spice, this recipe is one you hopefully will come back to again and again. Even for those meat lovers out there, you will not miss the meat with this recipe! Trust me!
Perfect weeknight meal
These enchiladas are much easier to throw together than you might think. It is also a great recipe to make in advance and freeze. I will often make this recipe and freeze the sauce so I can quickly toss together another batch at a later date. I love using the vegetables I have on hand such as sweet potatoes, butter nut squash or roasted carrots, but you can really use anything. Toss in some shredded chicken or turkey and boom, whole other meal for you!
This enchilada sauce is not overly spicy but packs some serious flavour. Seasoned with onions, garlic, smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, and oregano, the sauce is the real hero of this dish.
I also made a super basic crema to go with these roasted vegetable enchiladas. Made with greek yogurt, avocado, lime juice, garlic, and cilantro, the cream brings a bright freshness to the dish that balances out.
Assembling the enchiladas
Once you have the sauce prepared you are ready to assemble the enchiladas. It is best to have all of your ingredients directly in front of you to make assembly easier. You will need corn a 9X9 inch brownue pan, tortillas, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted butternut squash, black beans, cheddar cheese, and your enchilada sauce. Start by smearing a 1/2 cup of sauce along the bottom of the pan. From there grab a tortilla and add a scoop of sauce, followed by sweet potato, butternut squash, black beans, and cheddar cheese. Roll up the tortilla and then place it seam down in the tray. Continue until the pan is full. Once pan is full of the folded enchiladas, scoop a large amount of the sauce over the top of the enchiladas, followed by cheddar cheese. That’s it. They are now ready for the oven, or this would be a great time to freeze them if you are making in advance!
Once you have baked the roasted vegetable enchiladas, add on the avocado crema, some fresh cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice, and sliced avocado.
