Ingredients

  • 2 cups enchilada sauce (Try making your own- Homemade Enchilada Sauce,)
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 butternut squash (cut into small cubes)
  • olive oil cooking spray or 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 15- ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2/3 cup sharp cheddar shredded (or favorite cheese)
  • cilantro garnish (optional)
  • jalapenos garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat over to 450 f.
  • After cutting the butternut squash into small cubes, place it on a cookie sheet. Lightly spray with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Add the sliced red pepper to the baking sheet, and continue to bake the squash for another 10 minutes.
  • In a casserole dish, add ½ cup enchilada sauce down the center of the pan.
  • If your tortillas are still and difficult to roll, place them in a damp kitchen towel, and microwave for 20 seconds to soften.
  • Take a tortilla, dip it in enchilada sauce to coat, and then fill it with blackbeans, spinach, butternut squash, red peppers, and a spinkle of cheese. Roll, and turn over crease side down.
  • Repeat with the other 5 tortillas.
  • Use the remaining enchilada sauce to coat the tops of the tortillas. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 425 f. Cover the enchiladas with tin foil. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove the foil, and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until the cheese and sauce are bubbly.
  • Garnish with cilantro and jalapeno, if desired.
