Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Gluten-Free Option, Mexican, Vegan
Servings: 8 enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 15 oz. can cannellini beans
  • 2 cups shelled edamame (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup sweet corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 onion
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 4 oz. diced green chiles (I use mild, fire roasted hatch chiles)
  • 12 oz. salsa verde
  • 8 large tortillas (gluten-free if desired)
  • Vegan shredded cheese to taste
  • 3-4 slices vegan pepper jack cheese (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Dice onion and mince garlic.
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, saute onion 7-8 minutes. (I use 3 Tbsp. water/veggie broth for no-oil saute method.)
  • Add minced garlic, cumin, and green chiles. Cook 1 minute, stirring.
  • Add corn and shelled edamame. Saute for another 2 minutes.
  • Add white beans (rinsed and drained). Stir to combine and turn off stove.
  • Distribute the bean mixture evenly down the center of each tortilla. Top with a sprinkle of vegan shredded cheese, then roll up tightly tucking in both ends.
  • Place enchiladas seam side down in a 9×13" pan (lightly sprayed if desired). Coat the top with salsa verde.
  • Place in oven for 15 minutes. Remove and place strips of vegan pepper jack cheese on each enchilada if desired.
  • Return to oven for 10 minutes.

Notes

Made gluten-free with your favorite GF tortillas. (If using smaller corn tortillas, you'll need 12-16 tortillas. They're lovely with this dish!) You may want to turn this into an enchilada casserole and stack the filling & tortillas instead for easier assembly with corn tortillas.
