Here's another one to add to the "quick, cheap and healthy" list! Veggie Enchiladas. I shook the cupboards and this is a result of what fell out. I'm eating some of the leftovers for lunch as we speak. Yum! It's a nice change from all those holiday meals. This makes a big dish so you`ll have lots of leftovers!

Veggie Enchiladas
Serves 8 - 10

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • Large jar of salsa, your choice of mild, medium or hot
  • 798ml can of black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 cup (or more!) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 9 whole wheat tortillas (I had these in my freezer)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Put the chopped onion in a bowl, cover with water and microwave on high for 2 minutes
  3. In a 9 X 13 inch lasagna style pan, spread a layer of the salsa
  4. Top with a single layer of tortillas, breaking up pieces to ensure you have the layer fully covered
  5. Spoon on half of the beans, corn, onions, red pepper, salsa and 1/3 of the cheese
  6. Top with another layer of tortillas
  7. Spoon on the rest of the beans, corn, onions, red pepper and salsa and 1/3 of the cheese
  8. Top with the final layer of tortillas
  9. Bake for 20 minutes then sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake 10 minutes longer
  10. Let stand for 5 minutes
