enchiladas

i have some more vegetarian recipes to share!

so, i think last week?…i made some enchiladas. we do love enchiladas and i am always making them different. seamus (4) prefers just cheese but sometimes i add beans or rice to them. he doesn’t mind. sometimes i add other things because geoffrey, layla and i aren’t too picky. i stumbled upon a recipe and was happy to find a white enchilada sauce! i mean who doesn’t love some mushroom spinach enchiladas with a white cream sauce? seriously…they were so good! fresh mushrooms. fresh spinach. oh boy! i want more.

well, anyway..here is the recipe.

WHITE ENCHILADA SAUCE
1/4 cup butter
1/4 wheat flour (or your favorite flour. use a gluten free if needed)
2 cups water
8 oz sour cream (we use light around here)
garlic powder (or some fresh garlic)
salt/pepper
mexican seasoning (i didn’t have this and it was ok. i think i just used salt, pepper and garlic powder cause i was in a hurry.)

melt your butter in a saucepan. stir in the flour and cook a min or so. whisk in the water. add seasonings. cook until it thickens then mix in the sour cream. yum!

i had sauteed up some fresh baby bella mushrooms, onions and fresh spinach. but i didn’t saute to long. i added some salt and pepper to taste.

i filled some sun dried tomato flour tortillas with the veggies and drizzle of sauce. (i usually have whole wheat tortillas.) i lined them up in a baking dish, poured about half of the white enchilada sauce over them and topped with some cheese. not a lot. maybe a cup?

now, my sweet boy, seamus, doesn’t like mushrooms. i was just going to make some cheese enchiladas but i had some leftover black-eyed peas so i decided to mash up the beans a bit and throw those in. so, the cheese and black-eyed peas got the other half of the white enchilada sauce poured over them too but no cheese on top because they had it inside! we loved them!  both pans of enchiladas were so yummy! another meatless meal.

i think i need to gather ingredients and make up a few batches of these for the freezer! they make great leftovers too and daddy doesn’t complain when he gets yummy enchiladas in his lunch!

next time i should take a picture of what the inside looked like…but you can just imagine. oh, now that i look at this picture i remember what else i added to the sauce! i had some leftover adobe peppers in sauce so i cut one up and put it along with a scoop of sauce into the enchilada sauce. i would have liked to add more but i didn’t want it too spicy for the kids.
