    15 oz. can tomato sauce
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp minced onion

    15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

    1 tsp ground cumin

    12 corn tortillas, warmed
    Salad with dressing for side dish


Prep Ahead

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the broth, tomato sauce, ground cumin, garlic powder, minced onion and salt and pepper, making a red enchilada sauce. Bring to bubbling, then remove from heat.
In a mixing bowl, mash the black beans with a potato masher or fork. Mix in the corn, and green chilies. Stir in the ground
cumin and salt. Last, add 1 cup of the shredded cheese and combine well.
Warm the corn tortillas by wrapping them in a dish towel or paper towels and microwaving for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
To a 9x13-inch disposable baking pan, spread about 1 cup of the enchilada sauce in the base of the pan. Roll the bean corn
mixture into the warmed tortilla and place seam side down, nestled tightly together, in the pan. Pour another 1 cup
of red enchilada sauce over the top of the enchiladas and then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Repeat for the 2nd pan.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

To freeze, cover the disposable baking dish with foil, label it and place in the freezer. Freeze up to 6 months in fridge
freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
