Someone let me know that the Happy Herbivore’s cookbooks were on sale as a Kindle purchase for $2.99 each—so I bought the 4 that were that cheap. Last night I made Smoky Black Bean Enchiladas. I have made a similar recipe in the past and really enjoyed it, but in her cookbook there was an enchilada sauce recipe. Now I live in Texas and I know Mexican food; I make my own red and green enchilada sauces and they are wonderful, if I do say so myself. :) So I tried the red sauce in her book and it really is good. She uses a bit of cocoa powder in it, so it has a reminiscence of a mole, but really did taste good. I put the leftover sauce into a Mason jar and have it for leftovers now. I also made a vegan Queso sauce. This one uses cashews, as do a lot of the fake cheese sauces that I see, and as usual, it tasted too much of cashews last night; but I just put some on my leftovers and it is really good now. I made the sauce and then dumped in a can of mild Rotel tomatoes and green chilies. Leftovers also went into a Mason jar.
The smokey part of the enchiladas is from 1 teaspoon of liquid smoke, so you could use whatever kind of filling you like and just add that. I didn’t think it would be very good, but I was so very wrong.
You can see from the top picture that I did not bother to roll out each enchilada, rather, I made it casserole style.
