Bean Enchilada Pie

Submitted by: BTVMADS

Introduction

Enchiladas are traditionally a flavorless corn tortilla (let's face it, the store-bought kind taste like nothing!) stuffed to the gills with high-fat cheese. NOT a health-conscious choice! But use the tortillas like a pie crust stuffed with nutritious beans, tomatoes, lean protein crumbles, and reduced-fat cheese, and you have a delicious alternative!

Ingredients

    4, 6" corn tortillas
    1 small yellow onion, diced
    1 tbsp. garlic, minced
    1 can vegetarian refried beans (about 1.5 cups)
    1 cup canned diced tomatoes, well drained
    1 cup vegetarian soy crumbles
    1/2 cup enchilada sauce
    2 oz. each mozzarella and low fat cheddar
    1 tbsp. chili powder
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    1 tsp. dried oregano
    Hot sauce to taste

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375* and spritz a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray.

Saute the onions and garlic in a skillet over medium-high heat until soft and translucent. Set aside.

Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 15 seconds so they're flexible, then layer in the bottom of the baking dish, cutting or bending them to fit into the corners if needed.

Spread the beans evenly on the tortillas. Sprinkle all of the herbs and spices on top. Layer the remaining ingredients in the order of: onions, soy crumbles, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, and cheese.

Cover the dish and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the cover and bake until the cheese is bubbly and browned, about 10 more minutes.

Serve with a spicy cole slaw or salad and slices of avocado. Yum!
