Beans and Corn Enchilada

           Mexican cuisine in US has lot of similarities to the Indian cuisine. They have some very similar flavors. So the first time I had Quesadillas and Enchiladas here, I loved them so much that I tried making them at home. They were so tasty and filling that it became our go-to dish during our student life.
          So, here is an quick and easy recipe for tasty Enchiladas. You can also add more vegetables to the stuffing like spinach, bell peppers etc as per your taste and availability. This is a basic Beans and Corn Enchilada recipe.

  • 2 Burrito sized Tortilla
  • 1 can Refried Beans
  • 1 small Onion
  • 4-5 pickled Jalapeno slices
  • 1/2 cup boiled Sweet Corn
  • 2-3 Olives
  • 1 cup red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 cup Chunky Salsa
  • 1/4 cup Hot Sauce
  • 1 cup Mexican Blend Cheese
  • Heat some oil in a pan
  • Add the re-fried beans and mix it well
  • Let it simmer for 5-7 minutes
  • Meanwhile, finely chopped the onions, jalapenos and olives
  • Take a tortilla, I prefer spinach and tomato flavored tortillas rather than the plain flour tortilla. You can also use whole wheat tortilla
  • Spread a spoon of Enchilada sauce and a spoon of Hot sauce evenly on the tortilla.
  • Then spread a spoon of salsa on it
  • Now take 2 spoons of beans and keep it in the center of the tortilla
  • Add some onions, corn, jalapenos and olives over the beans.
  • Now sprinkle some garlic salt, black pepper and oregano leaves
  • Fold the tortilla as shown below.
  • Then add some more enchilada sauce and salsa on it.
