I’ve been trying to find a delicious enchilada recipe that won’t cost much to replace the old one I had that just takes too much money for one thing.
I found a great blog called Broke Ass Gourmet that has a LOT of budget recipes that my kids and I would love, so I tweaked a recipe from them into something I knew my kids would eat.
- 1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained $0.79
- 10 corn tortillas $1.19 OR 10 Flour Tortillas $1.39
- 2 cups shredded jack cheese $1.99
- 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped–1 tbsp reserved for garnish $1.00
- 1 10-oz bottle salsa verde $2.00
- 1/2 white onion, chopped $1.00
- 1 clove garlic, minced $1.98
- salt and pepper to taste Pantry
- olive oil Pantry
Total $10.59 – servings 10 – $1 per serving!
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 6″x8″ rectangular pan with olive oil and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine beans, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper, half of the salsa and 1 cup of the cheese.
- Fill the tortillas one by one with about 1/4 cup of the filling each. Lay them seam-side down in the pan, arranging them as necessary to fit them all. Pour the remaining salsa over the rolled tortillas and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top of the salsa. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes with the foil removed until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
- Serve garnished with additional cilantro.
