Bean and Corn Enchiladas

As a girl from the southwest, I love enchiladas and green chili sauce. Is it even a meal without green chili sauce on the table? However, I have been known to go rogue and not keep things 100 percent traditional.

These vegetable enchiladas are a perfect example of that. I go the deconstructed route. I love how perfectly rolled enchiladas look and taste. Who doesn’t?

The most important factor though is taste, of course. This is where I break the mold, you can achieve the same taste without painstakingly rolling each enchilada.

I know it sounds crazy but layering the ingredients is easy and the casserole-like dish comes together so quickly. I serve it casserole style or treat it as a dip and use tortilla chips to dip into all that cheesy goodness.

Try it, you might be surprised how easily this vegetarian dish comes together.

Start by pouring the green chile enchilada sauce into the bottom of a greased casserole. Tilt your pan back and forth to create an even coating. Then put down a layer of corn tortilla pieces. I cut mine into triangles.

The next layer is your corn, bean, sour cream, and green chile mixture. Top that with shredded cheese and more tortillas. Repeat this process two more times and end with a nice layer of cheese.

Yes, this recipe takes 8 cups of cheese. Trust me when I say that makes it amazing! Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until nice and bubbly.

After removing it from the oven be patient and don’t dive right in. First, it is HOT but second letting it sit for 10 minutes or so will allow it to set up nicely for serving or dipping.
