Enchiladas

Instructions
 

Roasted vegetables

  • Preheat your oven to 200 °C (392 °F). Prepare an oven tray with some olive oil.
  • Chop the onion, potato, sweet potato, the red pepper, the squash, and tear off the kale from the stem. Put everything in the oven tray with the garlic, the corn, the dried and crushed chilli flakes, salt, pepper, and granulated garlic. Put this in the oven to roast for about 30 minutes while we make the sauce.

The sauce

  • Heat up olive oil in a pan. Chop the onion and garlic and add to the pan with some salt. Add the red pepper. Then add the ñora chillies and all the spices and let fry for a few minutes.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes and let the sauce simmer for about 15 minutes. Blend the sauce before adding the beans and corn.

Enchiladas

  • After 30 minutes, take the vegetables out of the oven. Keep the oven on 200 °C (392° F). Prepare your oven dish of choice for the enchiladas with some oil.
  • To prepare the enchiladas, take a tortilla, cover with sauce, add a spoonful of roasted vegetables, roll it up, and place in the tray.
  • Once you've done the 8 tortillas, cover it all with more sauce and cheese.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly on top.
